"Army will join the civil administration in reconstruction of each road, bridge and culvert damaged by flood...We won't allow any corruption in reconstruction work," he told reporters after distributing relief goods among the flood victims in Raipura upazila.

He said one army member will be working with LGRD, LGED and local administration each so that every penny is utilised properly.

"Let's work together for the post-flood reconstruction," General Moeen said, adding all will have to face the challenge posed by the devastating floods.

The army chief reiterated that it is not the time for doing politics. "People won't forget those who're doing politics with floods."

General Moeen distributed relief goods among the flood victims on the premises of Mirzarchar Union Parishad Office in the upazila.
