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 election manifesto.
"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.
