The land of the thief mines

We thank Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha for his comment at a judicial conference at the Tangail circuit house on May 17, 2017. He said that Tk 60 out of every Tk 100 allocated for development purposes in the country is stolen. “This is the real picture. As a Chief Justice, I don't want to say more,” he said. 

It reveals a very grim picture indeed. How will the country prosper if this is the state of affairs? This reminds of something Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman once said – “Everyone gets gold mines, but I have got thief mines.” How right he was. A country will never be able to grow if its roots are not strong. We hope people will understand that and act accordingly.
