Default Bangladesh energy minister quits.

Bangladesh energy minister quits.

Bangladesh's Energy Minister AKM Mosharraf Hossain has submitted his resignation in a car scandal.

Mr Hossain allegedly accepted a Toyota Land Cruiser Cygnus from a Canadian-based energy company. He denies any wrongdoing.

However he confirmed he had resigned, citing personal reasons.

Groups campaigning to protect the country's gas resources had demanded the removal of the minister over his alleged use of the car.

The energy ministry has maintained that Mr Hossain did not violate government rules.

This is probably the very first incidence of a big shot quiting (vs. forced out) over a scandal..then again the 'quitting' part might be a face saving gesture.
If he did quit..it is actually a pleasant surprise to see this kind of example of a contrition especially with the high ranking govt. official - surely a step in the right direction.

Don't fool around with energy, once short-circuited, you are roasted.
