Verify news being shared about banking sector: Cabinet

The cabinet on Monday directed the authorities concerned to verify the accuracy of the videos and news seen on social media and newspapers about the current situation in the banking sector.

The direction came at the cabinet meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair at the PMO, said Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam, while briefing the media at the Bangladesh Secretariat.

Anwarul said different types of videos are being viewed on social media about the current situation in the banking sector. "An explanation has been sought from the authorities concerned to verify the accuracy of these videos."

Meanwhile, after the Secretaries' Committee meeting on Sunday, the cabinet secretary told reporters that there was an indirect discussion about the issue and instructions were given to the banking and finance division to expose the real scenario, Anwarul added.
