Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Iqbal Mahmood said anyone who is involved in lobbying for transfer and appointment of teachers will be punished.
He remarked on this in a meeting on "Special social inspiration for the implementation of standard primary education" at Rajshahi district council's auditorium on Friday.
"From now on, the transfer process will shift to online. A no-tolerance policy will be in effect for any lobbying for transfer or appointment. Either taking a bribe or lobbying for a position is a crime."
The chairman warned that necessary steps would be taken against all who are involved with corruption and no one will be spared.
Iqbal Mahmood further said, "The task of the ACC is not confined in catching corrupt people only, but to bring them to book to stop corruption. That is why we have given importance to quality education. Corruption will be significantly reduced if quality education is ensured at an early stage."
Rajshahi Deputy Commissioner Md Hamidul Haque presided over the meeting. Secretary of the Department of Primary and Mass Education Akram Al Hossain and Director General Dr AFM Manzoor Qadir also spoke at the occasion.
