Watch: Finance minister goes off on journo
Mahadi Al Hasnat

Angered by a question on good governance for tackling climate change impact in Bangladesh, Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith goes berserk on a journalist after the inauguration session of a workshop titled ‘Inclusive Budgeting and Financing for Climate Resilience Project’ held on Sunday morning at Hotel Pan Pacific Sonargaon in Dhaka.  

Journalists wrote their questions on pieces of papers and submitted those to the minister for answers.

One of the questions was, “Questions have been raised about the spending of the climate change mitigation fund, what is your response to that?”

Seeing the question Muhith got angry and yelled asking, “Who raised this question, if you have the courage stand up!” Apparently the questioner could not conjure up the courage to face the most senior minister in the cabinet. The rest is in the video.
