The Bangladesh National Building Code was not followed while the FR Tower was constructed

Calling upon all to follow the Bangladesh National Building Code (BNBC) in constructing buildings, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said the owner of Banani FR Tower, where a devastating fire left 25 people dead, did not follow the building code.

“The owner of the building constructed additional floors, violating rules and regulations,” the minister said at the inaugural session of World Communicator Council – Bangladesh Chapter, at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the city on Friday.

Hasan said as per the BNBC, the installation of a fire extinguishing system is mandatory in constructing a building, but the BNBC was not followed in building the FR Tower.

“That is why many people were killed in the Banani fire because of the greed of a building owner. I request all to follow the building code so that nobody gets killed in the fire of greediness,” he said.

The information minister said all must follow the building code in all infrastructure development and should be aware of building construction. “If necessary, all should protest when building codes are violated,” he said.

Hasan said there is a political party in the country which finds politics in every incident. “It even tries to find politics in an accident.”

“I request that the party please not look for politics in all incidents but to stand by the people affected ,” he said.

Former chief information commissioner, Prof Golam Rahman, and the chairman of the Public Relations Council of India, MB Joy Ram, among others, spoke at the function with chairman of World Communicator Council – Bangladesh Chapter, ASM Assaduzzman, in the chair.
