Speakers at the rally said that Saeed Khokon, despite being a failed mayor, has started lying about the dreamer of recent Dhaka, Fazle Nur Taposh. we’ll besiege his house due to his statement. Being a toddler of a worthy father, his statement isn’t acceptable. He sought nomination on the idea of passion, not merit, within the city elections. He has no shame. he’s making misleading statements about Barrister Tapas to avoid the continued investigation against him (Saeed Khokon). We strongly protest his statement.
In a human chain on Saturday, former mayor Mohammad Saeed Khokon made various allegations against Sheikh Tapas, including the transfer of cash from the DSCC.
Saeed Khokon said that Tapas has transferred many crores of rupees from South City Corporation to its own Madhumati Bank and is taking crores of rupees as profit by investing these many crores of rupees in various individuals and organizations. On the opposite hand, thanks to lack of cash, the poor employees of South City Corporation aren’t getting their salaries for months. Various development projects of the town corporation are stopped thanks to a scarcity of funds.
Saeed Khokon also commented that Tapas has lost his eligibility to be the mayor as a results of these activities.
In the human chain, Saeed Khokon said, ‘The current mayor of South City, Barrister Fazle Noor Taposh, has lost his eligibility for the post. Mayor Tapas has been vocal against corruption since taking office. I will be able to tell him, the story of limestone within the face of Raghav-Boals doesn’t suit so as to create a corruption-free administration, one must first be free from corruption. Then we’ve to seem at the limestone. ‘
After paying homage to the portrait of the daddy of the state at Dhanmondi No. 32 on the occasion of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s Homecoming Day on Sunday (January 10) morning, DSCC Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Nur Taposh said if anyone said anything out of private resentment, I do not think it’s appropriate to offer up from a responsible position. Moreover, these statements don’t carry any importance.
