Muhith under fire in JS for failure to restore discipline in Banking sector
Opposition MPs continued their scathing attacks on Finance Minister AMA Muhith in Parliament for his 'failure' to restore discipline in the banking sector.
Taking part in the budget discussion, Jasod's Nazmul Huq Pradhan MP said businessmen are looting banks yet the Finance Minister is not taking any action against them. "Rather, you're giving tax rebates and subsidies to banks. Take a decision. You can save banks in this way, but you will not save the economy," he said.
Jatiya Party MP Mohammad Noman said that the state is patronizing the banking sector. "Why will the banks not be made accountable, why banks will be subsidized by the taxes of the mass people, you are rewarding them in lieu of punishing them, and the same thing will happen again," he added.
