The premier has been provided with the details of those responsible following an investigation

Sharply criticizing those who have hammered down the houses built under Ashrayan Project 2 for the landless people, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said she has the full enquiry report on the misdeed committed in an ill effort to undermine the government.

“In different places, some people damaged nearly 300 houses with hammers and shovels damaged, and the media captured the pictures of those houses,” she said.

The prime minister said this while addressing a meeting of the Awami League Central Working Committee held at her official residence Ganabhaban.

The premier said she has got the full details of the culprits, including their names and others, after an investigation.

“The houses have been constructed for the poor people. Some people are so mean that they’ve damaged those. How is it possible? Can the houses built for the poor be demolished?” she said.

The prime minister, however, said there were allegations of corruption in nine places of the Ashrayan Project 2.

“Everyone worked sincerely. But some people came out with naughty minds. This was the most painful matter! How could they put their hands on the houses for the poor?” she said.

Sheikh Hasina said the government has so far built 150,000 houses and distributed those among the poor on the occasion of Mujib Year.

“A vested quarter intentionally spread falsehood of corruption in building the houses. Some houses have been damaged by landslides due to heavy rains.”

She said the government is moving ahead facing all these odds and obstacles and urged the ruling party leaders and workers to be more vigilant.

Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League chief, thanked all, including the mass people for their unwavering move to help the government make the project a successful one.

She asked the Awami League leaders and workers to further strengthen the organization as the next general election is approaching.

Talking about Covid-19, the premier said that the Awami League government has successfully tackled the pandemic as its organizational strength has extended up to the grassroots.

She mentioned that the party leaders and workers and its associate bodies stood beside people right from the outbreak of the corona pandemic risking their own lives.
