With good news on price inflation, Planning Minister MA Mannan said: ‘There is good news. It has become possible to rein in the wild horse of inflation. Inflation data will be released in a day or two. Inflation rose in August. But in September it waned. This is because 4 crore people get benefits through 1 crore family cards. As a result of various government initiatives, those directly affected by inflation have also benefited. As a result, inflation has slowed down. We do not carry out any engineering of data. It’s only getting a little late for procedural reasons.’
He went on to say, ‘This count has been done by spending people’s money. Now PCO is done. In this case, it should be remembered that this large amount is used correctly. The responsibility to spend this money is an honor as rare as it is important. You work independently. I speak as a bio senior. No problem at work. I work out of loyalty to the country and not to any party or system.’
State Minister of Planning. Shamsul Alam said, BBS has done a good count despite several obstacles. It is now being tested. BBS should be given a little more freedom. Bangladesh does not enjoy the same freedom of statistical resources as in India. Bureau of Statistics should provide more current information.
Mamun-al-Rashid, secretary of the Planning Commission, said there are indications that the PEC commission will do it independently. They have confirmed the mental and ethical aspects from the very beginning of the work. This guarantees that there will be a good PEC. If the information is not correct, the plan is not correct. Everyone should take this into account.
Secretary of the Statistics Department. Shahnaz Arefin said: ‘Numerology is like the legs of a table. on which the table stands. Likewise, no plan is correct without accurate statistics. We conducted the census according to UN guidelines. Hopefully, through the PEC, if there are errors, they will come out. This will tell BBS how accurate the census process has been.
