Awami League lawmaker from Chittagong-10 (Bandar and Patenga) constituency MA Latif once again misbehaved with a government official yesterday.
After being criticised for his behaviour with an additional inspector general of police on board a flight few months ago, MA Latif yesterday reminded the member (engineering) of Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) of his position and power as a member of parliament (MP).
The unpleasant incident took place when the six-member Public Undertaking Committee - Parliamentary Committee on Government Organisations - was visiting different jetties inside Chittagong port.
While accompanying them as the local MP, Latif provided the committee members with some information on New Mooring Container Terminal (NCT) that the official concerned of CPA couldn't agree with.
He once again put up some complaints regarding NCT activities to the committee while visiting jetty no 4. At this point, CPA Member (Engineering) Captain Zubaer Ahmed tried to refute the allegation when Latif challenged the CPA member to prove him wrong.
As Zubaer was about to explain his position, MA Latif rushed towards him raising his finger.
“I am a member of parliament,” he reminded the CPA official.
“You are not allowed to talk until I ask you,” he shouted.
The CPA official stepped back immediately to see the situation does not turn worse.
The incident created an embarrassing situation for the CPA officials as well as for the visiting committee members.
Latif, also the president of Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI), also misbehaved with customs officials at a meeting with NBR chairman at CCCI conference room on Saturday.
