MA Mannan for keeping Bangladesh Embassies open for 24 hours
DOT Desk: Putting emphasis on keeping Bangladesh Embassies open for 24 hours, Planning Minister MA Mannan on Saturday (Jan 19) said the embassies officials should be labor-friendly ones.
He was addressing a debate competition titled ‘UCB Public Parliament’ arranged by Debate for Democracy at Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC), reports Banglanews24.
“I know that Bangladeshi workers do not get cooperation from their embassy very easily. It must be stopped. I say, the embassies should be kept open for 24 hours. Labor-friendly officials have to be appointed in the embassy. Embassies should also play a key role in the development of labor market and its export” the minister added. He further said “Our female workers in Saudi Arabia are being tortured. It’s very inhuman…. It’s too bad to hear about this. So it is time to think further about sending female workers in Saudi Arabia”.
