Dr Gowher Rizvi , Prime minister’s International Affairs Adviser Thursday called upon all to stay alert against those in the government who spread corruption.
He was speaking at an award giving program on ‘TIB Investigative Journalism Awards-2017’ which was organised by Transparency International, Bangladesh at its Dhanmondi office in Dhaka.
“Poverty can never be alleviated from a country where there is corruption, and therefore we have to stay alert against those people as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given clear instruction that we have to alleviate poverty from Bangladesh,” Rizvi said.
There is no congenial environment to facilitate investigative journalism, said ATM Shamsul Huda, Former chief election commissioner.
“It is very difficult for a journalist to work on an investigative report,” Huda added.
