Pointing to the opposing statements of Dhaka South City Corporation mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh and former mayor Sayeed Khokon, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said the rampant corruption inside the present government has been exposed through their words.
Fakhrul made the comment in reply to a question at a press conference held at BNP Chairperson’s Gulshan office in Dhaka on Sunday.
Former mayor Mohammad Sayeed Khokon on Saturday said Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh has lost his eligibility for the post of mayor as he transfers crores of taka to his own Modhumoti Bank.
“Taposh has transferred hundreds of crores of taka from South City Corporation to his own Modhumoti Bank. Besides, by investing hundreds of crores of taka to the accounts of different individuals and organizations, he has taken crores of taka as profit,” said Khokon.
At the press conference, Fakhrul said, “Obaidul Quader’s brother’s speech and counter statements of mayor Taposh and Khokon have made the government’s face clear to the people. The looting that the Awami League has been carrying out after grabbing power for a decade has come to the fore in the recent statements of the leaders of the party.”
