No work is carried out without a bribe at the Department of Primary Education Kashiani upazila office in Gopalganj.
With hundreds of thousands of takas taken as bribes for all kinds of paperwork related to the primary school teachers, the education office has been turned into a money making machine. The teachers are being made to pay bribes for transfers, due bill approvals, travel approvals, etc and have become hostages to the Kashiani education office.
According to sources from the Kashiani education office, teachers going for their LPR are charged bribes of Tk10-20,000 each; in case of transfers the bribe goes up ranging from Tk30,000 to Tk1,00,000. It was alleged that a teacher named Champa was transferred illegally for over one lakh taka while she was on maternity leave.
