Here are some comments that came in response to Tuesday's The Daily Star news report headlined “Abul spared, for now”
Bangladesh government along with the ACC has given a message to the world: it will tolerate corruption and give shelter to the corrupt.
When confidence is shaken, there is provision to request for transfer of an under-trail case from one court to another. The ACC is holding a straw to survive in a stormy ocean with heavy-handed Abul in its lap. The question will now arise why then Abul had to resign if no evidence of corruption is found against him yet?
It is becoming clear day by day that people in the higher positions were involved in the Padma bridge corruption. That is the reason why those higher-level people are protecting Abul fearing that Abul will let the cat out of the bag.
This eyewash investigation and case filing is a complete waste of public money. One day people will make sure the certificate issuers and the receivers pay a price for mocking the nation.
The good news is Abul has been spared but the bad news is Bangladesh is not getting World Bank's loan for Padma bridge.
I guess the main culprit is off the hook because of his close ties with the high-ups in the AL government.
Let us see the response of the World Bank.
Here are some comments that came in response to Tuesday's The Daily Star news report headlined “Tazreen fire an act of sabotage”
This is a half done probe report leaving out the main issues. The prime minister had already said so (sabotage) without even any probe within 72 hours of the occurrence. We had read earlier in the newspaper that a woman had been apprehended who confessed to igniting the fire for Tk. 20,000. If it is an act of sabotage, the probe committee must tell us the cause and motive behind igniting such fire. Who were the masterminds? Please do not tell us any more about conspiracies. We are really fed up listening to these fairy tales.
It is primarily the failure of the government for not implementing safety provisions. How long will we keep hearing from this government about conspiracy behind each and every incident? If the conspirators are so powerful, then what is the government for? Those who have prevented the workers from running to safe places, must have known the true conspirators. Bring them before the media and make them speak. The government is clearly trying to make it a political issue.
I think it will be justice to give death penalty to at least one owner for the lives of nearly 120. If nothing is done, the future industrialists will also be careless about human lives. Please show no mercy.
Since the first day of the fire, the government has been telling us that it was a sabotage. I guess the owner is somehow related to the government because some staffs were arrested but not the owner.
