There is nothing to deny that there is corruption in the country, said Planning Minister MA Mannan. The three-day training workshop was inaugurated at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center on Monday (September 26) under the National Resilient Program (NPR) program of the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS). He made the remarks at the inaugural function of a workshop on climate data collection and SDG implementation.

He warned that corruption must be eradicated from the country, adding that the pressure to prevent corruption will continue. We have to drive the poison out of the country. But corruption cannot be stopped by beating someone. Efforts continue with various laws and regulations.

According to MA Mannan, quality cannot be compromised. There is no benefit in implementing the project if it is not done in a standard manner. Our job is not to stop the project. But the project must be standardized. The project must be taken in the interest of the people. We want to work fast. But we have to work within the law.

“We all work together in emergencies,” he said. But why not do it in normal time. Same hand, same head, same man. Then why not work as well as an emergency in normal times?
