By his unpleasant truth speech, HT Imam put the Hasina government into an embarrassing situation. What did HT Imam say? Prime Minister`s Adviser HT Imam, at a programme of Bangladesh Chhatra League, Imam referred to the role of police and administration during the January 5 election, and said he talked to officials concerned in all upazilas, and asked them to form mobile courts with pro-AL officials to help to hold the election. He said: “They [pro-AL officials] stood by us and sacrificed their lives for us. Nineteen of our policemen were killed brutally by Jamaat-Shibir men. They all were our men.” Through such remarks he explained the advantage of having party men in the administration and how the AL benefited from this.
He also assured the BCL men of favouring them to get government jobs through the BCS examination. He said the BCL men would just have to try and overcome the hurdle of written test in civil service exams. The rest would be taken care of. “We will see how much we can help you with the viva voce. “Whenever I take anyone`s curriculum vitae to the prime minister or request her to give someone a job, she asks whether the person was involved in Chhatra League politics and also about his or her contribution to politics.”
His assurance and remarks about the BCS exam run contrary to the constitutional provision that speaks of equality for everyone to get public jobs.
However, In a separate Press conference he denied that and express that his full commentary was not that.
