Rajibpur Upazila Nirbahi Officer Amit Chakraborty has constituted a three-member investigation committee in the context of allegations of irregularities in the distribution of sailor drums against Rajibpur Sadar Union Parishad Chairman Miron Mohammad Ilyas of Kurigram.
It is known that under the Ministry of Food and Relief in the financial year 2020-21, about 1,700 silos have been allotted to Rajibpur Sadar Union for the preservation of agricultural seeds in flood-affected areas. Rajibpur Upazila Nirbahi Officer said that an investigation committee has been formed against him on the allegation of irregularities in the distribution of allotted sailors.
Previously, Sailors did not get half of the list of original names. Saylor was allotted during the tenure of former chairman Kamrul Alam Badal. He sent the final list of the ministry through the upazila executive officer and there is no opportunity to change the list, says the former chairman.
According to the written complaint, Rafiqul Islam, father Azizur Rahman, village Kacharipara, despite his name in the list of sailor drums, he did not get a sailor. Rafiqul Islam said, Badal chairman took the name to give us this sailor. Later the allocation came in our name but now there is no replacement chairman, it has been six months since Miron got the chairmanship. Therefore, after making a new list as desired, the chairman distributed some sailor drums among his own people, and the rest was embezzled by the chairman.
Not just me, many people like me didn’t get the sailor drum even after being on the list. Most of them do not open their mouths against him, even if they do, they are afraid to file a written complaint. I filed a written complaint against him with UNO for this irregularity. I strongly request to investigate my claim properly and take necessary action.
In this regard, Upazila Nirbahi Officer Amit Chakraborty said, I received a written complaint against the chairman on August 2. In this context, I have constituted a three-member investigation committee. Action will be taken against him if the investigation report is proved to be true.
