Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque has said that the list of Rajakars (local collaborators during the Liberation War in 1971) will be published before the Victory Day this year.

He came up with the information while exchanging views with freedom fighters from Dhaka and Mymensingh divisions at the Banga Taj auditorium in Rathkhola of Gazipur on Friday.

The minister said, "Freedom fighters will get their identity cards in next January. The facilities they are entitled to get will be written on the back of the IDs. Making graves of all freedom fighters in a same design will also start in January."

"There are discontents regarding the FF allowances. We are working on it. The existing discontent will end in 2020, the year of Bangabandhu's birth centenary. Some 15 thousand distressed freedom fighters will get houses worth Tk 15 lakh apiece as a gift from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the Mujib Year," he further said.
