A discussion was held at the office of Narayanganj’s Deputy Commissioner (DC) to observe the 49th National Cooperative Day on Saturday.
The district cooperative office organized the event upholding a slogan ‘philosophy of Bangabandhu, developments of cooperatives’ with Narayanganj DC Mohammad Jasimuddin attending the event as the chief guest.
Addressing the event, DC Jasimuddin said a good number of cooperative bodies are working for the people but some fake cooperative organizations are taking away from people leaving them on the street.
It becomes a mammoth task to get permission to open a cooperative organization since application goes through the intelligence’s verification as well as DC office’s clearance, he added.
The DC said they have a weakness to inspect all cooperatives organizations altogether and consolidate those in a platform to do good jobs.
“We have to hear the victims who were preyed by fake cooperatives then we have to deal with it. If you have complaint let us know. We are always beside you. Besides, Be aware yourself so you wouldn’t be cheated,” Jasimuddin added.
Presided over by district cooperative officer Mohammad Imran Habib, Additional Police Super Mostafizur Rahaman, Additional Deputy Commissioner Shamim Bepari, Sub Assistant Registrar of District cooperatives office Mafroza Akter, president of cooperative associations Mohammad Abul Kashem, Officer-In-charge of Fatulla Model Police Station Aslam Hossain, among others, were present.
A rally was also brought out in front of the DC office to mark the National Cooperative Day.
