Rejoinder : Gazipur LEGD Executive Engineer contradicts news
Executive Engineer of Local Government Engineer Department (LGED), Gazipur Md Abdul Barek contradicted a news item published in The Country Today online and its print version on September 10, 2023.
He said, the development works within the Gazipur City Corporation are being implemented by by the CGP and CRDP, not by the Executive Engineer of LGED, Gazipur district.
He also said, the total allocation of LGED in Gazipur district during the last four years is less than 700 crores. So misappropriation of that amount is not absolutely right.
Mr Barek further said that the LGED has been working out of the city corporation with transparency and maintaining standard of works as per rules and conditions of tenders.
He added that Project Director (PD) is appointed by the concerned ministry, not by the Chief Engineer.
Local people and contractors said, Executive Engineer Md Abdul Barek worked sincerely during his tenure and quality of development works is maintained properly.
Mr Barek claimed that this news has tarnished his image as it contained misinformation and Gazipur City Corporation is out of his working area.
We work as per specifications with the satisfaction of the higher authority, he explained.
