Ministries and secretariat formed

Young bureaucrats refused to join Mujibnagar secretariat.

Some time in July/August different ministries and secretariat were organized in a typical colonial fashion. Most of the escapee civil servants that had crossed over had been inducted in those bureaucratic organizations. Like sectors and sub-sectors these offices were also posted with Indian counterparts. But some patriotic young bureaucrats considered such exercise to be totally useless and counterproductive. They revolted and refused to join the secretariat. Instead they wanted to join the sectors to fight along with the Mukti Fauj. Thowfiq Elahi Choudhury and Kamal Siddiqi were two such officers.
