The new information minister says unfinished jobs will be finished

The new Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud has said that he will consider providing state assistance to good media outlets that cannot perform smoothly for various obstacles.

"I will look into how the state can assist credible and good media in the truest sense, be it either newspaper or television, that are unable to do good work for various barriers," he told reporters in his immediate reaction after taking oath as the information minister at Bangabhabanin Dhaka on Monday, reports UNB.

Hasan said he has just taken oath and would talk to officials concerned at his ministry to work out the next steps to assist those media outlets.

The new minister praised his predecessor Hasanul Haq Inu. “He [Inu] did a very good job during his tenure.”

Noting that Inu took many initiatives, Hasan said he would implement the previous minister’s unfinished jobs as per directives of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Hasan Mahmud, also the Awami League's publication and publicity secretary, was elected MP from the Chittagong 7 constituency in the 11th general election held on December 30.

He had been appointed state minister for foreign affairs in January 2009 in Sheikh Hasina's cabinet, but was moved to the position of state minister for environment and forests six months later.

In November 2011, he was promoted as the full minister of environment and forest and served in the position until the end of 2013.
