During a budget discussion at the Jatiya Sangsad, the main opposition party lawmaker said hundreds of crores of taka have been looted and laundered from different state banks but the finance minister has failed to take any action against the looters.
"Furthermore, he (Muhith) had mentioned in the proposed national budget that Tk 2000 crore will be allocated to refinance different state banks," Bablu stated.
"These are depositors' money, he cannot give the money to different state banks on the purpose of refinancing. It is totally injustice," he said.
The finance minister should quit from his post for this "disastrous" and "oppressive" budget proposal, he added.
