Drive against Corruption
At the moment, corruption has become the most devastating problems in Bangladesh. Within Bangladesh, corruption has engulfed the administrative, commercial, political plus social sectors and also financial sectors. It has enlarged its paw in education sector too. Law enforcing agencies are classified as the most corrupted department in Bangladesh according to the Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) report.
The media had been rife with reports on corruption. There was the ‘nuclear pillow’ referring to a pillow being bought at exorbitant costs for the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant Project. Then there was a deluge of corruption reports involving curtains for the Faridpur Medical College Hospital, tin sheets for the roof of a building in Bandarban, medical college books and other government purchases.
In the time of the ongoing drive against corruption, the Prime Minister had ordered senior leaders, law enforcement officials and high officials not to compromise and spare any godfather, extortionist, tender manipulators, drug smugglers or any other corrupt person or groups. Many are being arrested at the district level for corruption during this drive. Government has declared that it will continue until criminalization and corruption are uprooted.
