Bangladesh Parliament Passes Municipality Bill


Bangladesh Parliament on Monday passed the municipality bill which excluded the controversial provision of making the MPs advisers to the local government body.

The change came at the last stage of the passage though local government minister Syed Ashraful Islam did not tell the House about the government's decision.

Chief whip Abdus Shahid said that the MPs would not be the advisers.

Awami League MP A K M Mozammel Haq, a former chairman of Gazipur municipality, proposed some amendments to the bill and urged the government not to make the MPs advisers to the local government body.

Some MPs, irrespective of parties, started shouting "we don't accept" when Haq was speaking against the provision of making the MPs the ex-officio advisers.
