Ministers and members of parliament will
have to disclose their assets from next month, said finance minister Abul Maal
Abdul Muhit on Tuesday.
The minister said the move to make wealth accounts of
elected representatives available to the public was in line with Awami League's
"We were unable to take the initiative so far this
month, but are enforcing it from February," Muhit told reporters after his
first meeting with officials of National Board of Revenue.
The finance minister warned that the NBR would collect the
wealth accounts to target tax evaders.
"A group of wealth monsters have been created in our
country, we must see whether they pay their taxes," he said.
