Every political parties in Bangladesh, every citizen with a minimum common sense is questioning the eligibility of current Health minister. But for some unknown reason, this PM Sheikh Hasina is not taking him out of the ministry. It is now proven that there are huge corruption going on in health sector in Bangladesh. It was so far a open secret, but since different facts and corruption against differerent hospitals are coming out, it is not hidden any more that historically health sector is one of the most corrupt sectors in Bangladesh. Even in this parliament where every MPs are actually selected by Sheikh Hasina, even there were lots of criticism about this current Health Minister. But for some unknown reason he is still in power, though he does not work in his ministry actively. But where as during this pandemic, country needed a strong support from political leaders, specially from health minister. But it is actually completely opposite.
From the photo in this article, everyone can see that Health Minister was present while Health DG and Regent hospital signed contract for Covid 19 testing. When asked, his execuse was he was there as many times he gets invitation to remain present in different events. He also play naive about the occassion. How stupid the execuse was, even a child would understand that he is lying. A minister who is attending a signing ceremony which is related to his own ministry and he is present physically, and he is claiming ignorance of the occassion. Are we stupid?
That is not the topic I am discussing here today, rather I am more interested about why the hell he is still running the office of health ministry? Why even after so much criticism, he is not getting fired from his office? That raises so many questions, like there is stronger power and may be powerful persons backing him up. Or questions may arise, he may be involved in different things which he might disclose and that might put lots of other stack holders at risk, which these power stack holders don't want. Or Prime Minister has decided, like always that she has the power to do or undo anything in the country, so she will do whatever she wants. And for this time, she has decided not to do anything and keep quite and enjoy suffering general public.
What I believe, very powerful people of this country and abroad are involved in this game. I am sure Sheikh Hasina and her other family members are involved in these crimes related to health ministry. These are very powerful people, when it comes Bangladesh as there is no fair law and order system in the country. They don't want to do something which will put their gain and reputation at risk, thus they are not interested at all to fire this health minister. Eventually they will have to, but I think by then two things will happen. covid situation will no longer be the big problem and meadia attention will no longer be focusing on whether the health minister got sacked or not. Second thing is, all these powerful criminals will cut a deal with current health minister by offering a compensation of some kind, so that after he gets sacked, he will remain quiet. Now, I suspect he will be offered a higher position in the political party or something of a big financial gain in the future. I don't know the future, but time will tell. Looking forward to that.
