The minister prayed for the eternal rest of the departed souls of those killed on August 15, 1975, terming the day a scandalous chapter of the history of the Bengali nation.
"Bangabandhu Diploma Engineers Council was by the side of the Awami League in its struggling days in the past," he said.
An unauthorized group has occupied the IDEB in the name of the Bangabandhu Diploma Engineers Council (BDEC), the minister added.

In his speech, Dr Malek said: “Despite issuing a letter to stop all the unauthorized activities in the name of BDEC early on, a group under the supervision of IDEB is operating illegal activities, which is unethical.”
He urged the organization to stop its activities.
