PM instructs authorities to monitor NGO activities
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina directed the authorities concerned to monitor the activities of non-government organizations (NGOs) in an National Implementation Committee for Administrative Reforms (Nicar) meeting on Monday, multiple ministers said seeking anonymity. The ministers said the meeting mostly discussed the salaries and wages of the factory workers in every industries. In the meeting, Shipping Minister Shahjahan Khan said: “The workers of Bangladesh are doing well as they get between Tk7,000 and Tk8,000 as their starting monthly salaries. But the wage should be slightly higher. The salaries and wages of government employees have increased significantly but the wages of factory workers did not increase compared to that.” The State Minister of Labour and Employment Mujibul Haque Chunnu said: “The authorities revise the wage structure in every five years. The current wage will be revised in 2018 as per the schedule. But the authorities may look into revising the wages slightly earlier as per the minister's request.” At one point of the meeting, the prime minister asked about the situation of NGOs. She also asked if any outsider can still influence factories and operate any movement there. Responding to her question, Chunnu said: “There is no room for such activities because factory workers have individual trade unions now. These trade unions are mostly influenced by different NGOs but we do not monitor the funding and other activities of these NGOs.” The prime minister then directed the authorities to monitor the activities of NGOs.
