None can grab public property: Housing Minister


DHAKA, Jan 16, 2019 (BSS) – Housing and Public Works Minister SM Rejaul
Karim today made it clear that none would be able to grab public property of
National Housing Authority (NHA).

“The land or assets belongs to the state. Such state property will be
protected shrugging off all sorts of influence and interference. All will
have to remain vigil in this regard,” the Minister said while exchanging
views with officers of National Housing Authority at its conference room

Rejaul Karim said usually those who have amassed a lot of wealth and
muscle power tend to grab property and adopt various strategies in this

“Honest, transparent, accountable and corruption-free environment should be
ensured at the workplaces to stop such illegal activity. Besides, dynamism
should have to be infused in the activities of the NHA to ensure services to
the countrymen,” he added.

Stressing the need for building more people-friendly environment at the
ministry and also at its subordinate organisations, Rejaul also directed the
officials concerned so that the common people are not harassed while getting
their services.

Housing and Public Works Secretary Md Shaheed Ullah Khandaker and Chairman
of the National Housing Authoring Md. Rashidul Islam, addressed the event,
among others.
