Reappointment of Dhaka Wasa MD: HC order on challenge Sunday

The High Court will deliver its order on Sunday on a writ petition that challenged the legality of the process for reappointing Taqsem A Khan to the post of managing director (MD) of Dhaka Wasa.

The HC bench of Justice JBM Hassan and Justice Md Khairul Alam yesterday fixed the date after concluding hearing on the matter.

Khandker Monjur Morshed, former additional chief engineer of Bangladesh Water Development Board, submitted the writ petition to the HC on September 24.

In it, he prayed to the HC to stay the proposal for extending the tenure of Taqsem as Wasa MD by three more years.

Citing the petition, Khandker Monjur's lawyer Md Tanvir Ahmed told The Daily Star that the Wasa's board meeting is supposed to be convened by its chairman or vice chairman to select its MD as per The Water Supply and Sewerage Authority Act 1996. But, the meeting was convened by its board secretary on September 17.

Besides, a selection committee was supposed to be formed for the appointment of the MD and a gazette notification must be issued for constituting the selection committee as per the relevant rules, but no such committee was formed, lawyer Tanvir said.
