The research found lack of budget allocation for relief where a range of Tk20-Tk772 were allocated for each household in 28 flood-affected districts

Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has said there are households of two districts in the flood affected areas that on an average received Tk4 in relief.

The research findings were unveiled at a press conference organized by TIB at Dhaka’s Midas Centre on Sunday.

TIB Executive Director Dr Iftekharuzzaman said: “We found irregularities and corruption. Less than allocated relief was distributed. Public representatives have not done their duties properly.”

The research found lack of budget allocation for relief where a range of Tk20-Tk772 were allocated for each household in 28 flood-affected districts.
