Finance minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith on Wednesday told parliament that loan defaulters were causing dangerous harm to the country and the government would make public a list of loan defaulters.

‘The loan defaulters keep away the amount which can be invested in other areas. The list of the loan defaulters will be public time to time,’ Muhith told the house while responding to a supplementary question of independent lawmaker Rustam Ali Farazi.

The finance minister said the loan defaulters are causing dangerous harm to the nation.

Taking the floor, the independent lawmaker urged the minister to make the list of loan defaulters public.

Muhith said, ‘The list of the loan defaulters have been made public in parliament for several times. The lawmakers also assisted me in doing so.’

The finance minister said he would think for publishing the names and addresses of the loan defaulters in media.

 ‘I am yet to think on it. But it can be done. It is a good proposal,’ he said.
