Yunus lies, says Muhith
Finance Minister AMA Muhith on Sunday claimed that Nobel laureate Dr Mohammad Yunus has spread propaganda against the government saying that it has been attempting to take over the bank.
“I repeatedly said that the government has no intention to take over the bank; those happening about the bank are unnecessary campaign and it is harmful for the country,” he said.
The minister said this while speaking as the chief guest at a roundtable organised by Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) in the capital’s Cirdap auditorium.
Terming the Padma bridge and Grameen Bank issues as ‘problems’, he said he is now tired of these crises.
He also claimed that he expanded the microcredit process by 30 percent where Yunus contributed in the sector by 12 percent.
“There is another man who is working for the expansion of the microcredit sector, he is sitting here and it is I,” Muhith said.
TIB Chairperson Advocate Sultana Kamal and TIB Trustee Board Member M Hafizuddin Khan attended the programme.
