Punitive and disciplinary action will be taken against those found responsible for the faulty construction, the minister says

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said that some elements are overplaying the defects found in the construction of only 24 out of thousands of houses gifted to the homeless by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The government has provided houses for 12 million people on the occasion of the Mujib Year, Quader said on Thursday, adding that defects have been found only in 0.25% of the houses.

At a virtual regular press briefing, he urged all to remain vigilant against any motivated propaganda against the noble and humanitarian program of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The faulty houses will be repaired and rebuilt by the government, said Quader, who is also the road transport and bridges minister.

He said the houses were built on government-owned land and in many cases damages occurred as those were built in relatively low-lying areas.

He also warned that those involved in negligence and irregularities in duty will not be spared.
