Former state minister for Industries and ruling Awami League MP Kamal Ahmed Mojumder demanded the trial of former education minister and presently Social Welfare Minister Dipu Moni for allegedly destroying Monipur School and College, founded by the Awami League MP.

Kamal Mojumder, a lawmaker from Dhaka-15 constituency, said this while participating in the Thanksgiving motion in the president’s speech on Wednesday.

In his speech, Kamal Mojumder just mentioned the words—former education minister—but didn’t utter Dipu Moni’s name.

“My constituency (Mirpur-Kafrul) is home to numerous Jamaat leaders and activists. Jamaat's Amir Shafiqur Rahman Chowdhury became a candidate (in the 2018 elections) from this area in the parliamentary election,” Kamal Mojumder said.

He said that Monipur School and College, the only educational institution there, is now on the verge of ruin. The school was being run under the direction of the prime minister.

Kamal Mojumder alleged that all of a sudden, due to the manipulation of the former education minister (Dipu Moni) and deputy commissioner of Dhaka, Jamaat was put in power to run the educational institution built by him, which caused disaster in the results of the last academic year as 2,300 children failed and the number of GPA-achieved students was 1,200 less than compared to the previous year.

He complained that the pro-Jamaat teacher was appointed as the headmaster, who is suffering from paralysis and cannot speak.

“Despite repeated requests to the Ministry of Education, he has not been removed yet from his post. They are taking the school to destruction,” he said.

Kamal Mojumder called upon the prime minister to save the school.

“I built this school step by step on the land allotted by you (PM). I don't know why the former education minister has an ill motive involving the school. I want her trial.”

Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud, in his speech on the Thanksgiving motion, said that there was a conspiracy at home and abroad surrounding the 12th parliamentary elections.

“Compared to other elections, there was no violence in the January 7 polls. Many tried to raise questions.”

Hasan Mahmud pointed out the voter turnout in Romania, Bulgaria, Hong Kong, Ireland, and Portugal and said voter turnout in these countries was below 44 percent.

He said that so far, 78 governments or heads of state have congratulated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and expressed their desire to work with this government.
