>govt extends time for Nam flat handover

>THE housing and public works ministry has extended the deadline until March 31 for handing over to it the Nam flats the former lawmakers were allotted.
The parliament secretariat today received a letter that asked it to cancel all the allotments of Nam apartments to the lawmakers of eighth parliament and to ask them to move petitions to the Directorate of Government Accommodation (DGA) for fresh allotment.
“We’ve received the letter today,” Secretary of Parliament Secretariat Ashfaq Hamid told The Daily Star.
He, however, could not say immediately how the parliament secretariat would respond to it. His office did not respond to several previous letters that asked for cancelling the ex-lawmakers’ allotment to pave the way for realising revised rent after fresh allotment, said officials.
Contacted in the night for his comments, Speaker Jamiruddin Sircar suggested contacting the parliament secretariat.
Today’s letter came after the Chief Adviser’s Office had asked the ministry on Sunday to implement the government decision on realising new charges for Nam flats from January, which was not being implemented as the parliament secretariat did not cancel the allotments to the resident former lawmakers by the timeline.
