Kabir Bin Anwar, Vice President of Administrative Service Association and Senior Secretary of the Ministry of Water Resources, has termed the incident of manhandling of UNO of Bera upazila as contemptuous and a ploy to make the government unstable. 

He said Prime Minister has said to take legal action of the incident of manhandling of UNO. He said, the case has been filed in this connection and suspended Municipal Mayor Abdul Baten will be brought to the book. 

He further mentioned, public representatives and political leaders of Bera informed him, though the country was liberated in 1971, Bera remained under the clutch of the tyranny of Municipal Mayor Abdul Baten. All activities of Bera are being conducted by the own, concocted rule of the Municipal Mayor.  

He said, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has tried the war criminals and hanged the killers of Bangabandhu. Legal action will also be taken against these people concealed in disguise.  

Kabir Bin Anowar expressed his fellow-feelings from the Administrative Service Association to those government officials who are under threat by the public representatives. The government officials are vocal and united against the misconduct of those public representatives and they would face those incidents legally, said Kabir Bin Anowar during a press briefing in Bera on Friday.
