Govt won’t do anything that goes against journalists: Quader

DHAKA, May 20, 2021 (BSS) – Road Transport and Bridges Minister
Obaidul Quader today said the government will not do anything that
goes against the interests of journalists.

“The Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government is
journalist-friendly one. It is very sympathetic to any issue of media.
Keep trust in Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,” he told a press
conference at his official residence here.

Quader, also the Awami League General Secretary, said the premier
always stay beside journalists in following the path of constructive
journalism.

Calling upon the country’s journalist community to be patient, he
said journalists collect information in various ways for professional
reasons.

Except unpublished information, Quader said, they have opportunities
to gather information applying proper procedures of the Right to
Information Act but it must be considered whether the processes,
followed by an experienced journalist, is accurate or not.

He also urged journalists to think whether it is logical to take
side of journalist Rozina Islam before the truth comes out through a
probe.

The road transport minister said journalists perform their
professional duties every day at the Secretariat and gather
information but no one secretly takes photos of files or takes away
documents.

“The concerned reporter admitted her mistakes too,” he added.
