Menon urges the government to build a modern and secular Bangladesh

Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon has said some Tk900,000 crore has been siphoned off abroad from Bangladesh.

He made this remarks while addressing council of Workers Party’s Gazipur district unit at Dhaka's Bangataj Auditorium on Monday.

Menon said: “As far as I know, so far some Tk900,000 crore has been siphoned off. The previous finance minister [Abul Maal Abdul Muhith] admitted that Tk525,000 crore has been taken out of Bangladesh, with which a national budget can be formulated.” 

He also said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has become the role model of development, reports UNB.

However, he added saying that only 5% people are the beneficiaries of that development.

“Those who run casino business are intruders into the party [alliance] and loan defaulters. They make huge money and build second homes in foreign countries with that,” he added.

“The premier has launched a drive against illegal casinos. Their [people involved with illegal casinos] roots are deep, and they have become unrestrained after getting power, I urge the government not to spare them,” he added.

Menon furthered: "It is time to remove discriminations from society, and build a modern and secular Bangladesh being imbued with the Liberation War spirit.”
