Sajeda bins graft claims against her

Awami League (AL) presidium member Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury yesterday rejected the allegation of corruption against her.
"I obviously reject the government list that has shown me as corrupt," she told the news agency and electronic media at her Gulshan residence.
Sajeda said she will reply and state her position if the government serves notice on her.
She opposed the arrest of Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia before completion of investigation into corruption against them.
Criticising the motive behind putting names of Awami Leaguers on the lists of corruption suspects, Sajeda said it is being done under a planned design to silence the voice of AL leaders and workers.
'I have the right to know of my offence. Is it my offence to oppose Rajakars?”
Sajeda said she was implicated in corruption charge based on the statement of arrested chief conservator of forest Osman Gani whom she suspended on charges theft and corruption while she was the minister for forest and environment.
She admitted that as a minister she gave jobs to many unemployed people but not in exchange for money.
