Authority plays no role to stop the usage of outdated machineries in mills and factories
Ameer-e-Jamaat condoles as 10 labours died so far in Dinajpur boiler explosion accident
Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maqbul Ahmad has issued the following statement on 23rd April, 2017 expressing deep shock and condolence as 21 labours including some female workers have been burnt at the boiler explosion in Jamuna Auto Rice Mill in Raniganj intersection of Dinajpur district Sadar Upazila and off the injured so far 10 labours have been died.
“It is really painful as 10 labours have been died and 11 others have been affected by serious burn injury at a incident of boiler explosion in Jamuna Auto Rice Mill in Raniganj intersection of Dinajpur district Sadar Upazila.
We have observed in various occasion that often working labours and general people are being killed in boiler explosion in different rice mills. Peoples and labours are becoming the victim of casualties as the owners of the mills still use old and outdated boiler. The concerned authorities are also careless about the usage of the old machineries. Resultantly such accidents happen in regular basis which are also causing huge casualties. Under the circumstances, I am calling upon the concerned authority to undertake due initiatives to stop such accidents and also to investigate the Dinajpur boiler explosion accident in order to bring the real responsible personnel to the book.
I am extending deep sympathy to the killed and injured labours of this painful accident and also praying for the quick recovery of the burn injured. Besides, I am also asking the authorities to pay due compensation to the deceased and the wounded victims.”
