Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is to take action on those engaged in irregularities and corruption of the ৳ 10/kilogram rice distribution program for the poor.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the program of distribution of rice at this reduced price on September 7 at Chilmari in Kurigram, in a move to make Bangladesh hunger free.
However, it is dreaded that the program for the poor and low-income people will be prevalent with irregularities and corruption, to avoid that it is ACC’s responsibility to monitor the program for the present circumstances actively.
The anti-graft body has issued warnings to its respective district offices urging for taking legal action upon those charged with monitoring and responsible for the irregularities.
Order in this regard signed by Muhammad Munir Chowdhury, Director General (Administration) of the ACC, has now been distributed.
