Earlier, Bangladesh Bank asked banks to report on stimulus package usage by the company within five days.
The central bank claimed that companies are investing stimulus packages into other sectors such as land and share market. But the funds were given to the companies to use them as their working capital.
However, people related to share markers strongly denied the claim made by the central bank. They said the recent share market boom was not dependent on stimulus packages.
