The Cabinet on Monday approved the draft of Bangladeshi Flag Vessels (protection) Bill 2019.

The approval was given at the weekly meeting of the Cabinet held at the Prime Minister’s Office with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.

The Cabinet also approved the drafts of the ‘Bangladesh Institute of Sports Education Bill 2019’ and International Mother Language Institute Award Policy-2019’,.

Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam was briefing reporters after the meeting at the secretariat.

He also dismissed a Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) report that claimed promotions are being given to senior government officials on the basis of political consideration.

“I have not yet seen the TIB report. Like you (journalists), I knew the thing that came in the news. But, the matter is not exactly the same as stated by the TIB in a wholesale manner,” the secretary said.
