Bhola, October 30: Mentioning that the current anti-corruption drive is not eyewash, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader here on Wednesday said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has proved that the ruling party does not spare even its members for wrongdoings.“She (PM) hasn’t spared any member of her own family during the drive. She understands the people’s pulse. She has proved that Awami League doesn’t let its members off the hook if they commit crimes and misdeeds,” he said.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, was addressing a rally in Charfasson upazila after inaugurating the Charfasson-Betua Launchghat road.
Claiming that BNP tried to fish in the troubled waters over the clash between police and locals that left four people dead in Borhanuddin upazila, he said their bid went in vain following Prime Minister’s announcement that no one involved in the incident will be spared. “Sheikh Hasina declared that those involved in the Bhola incident won’t be spared, even if they are members of Awami League.”
Sheikh Hasina is taking action wherever there are extortion of money, tender manipulation, drug peddling, corruption and violence and she will not spare anyone, Quader said.
He urged party leaders and activists to behave well with people and not to allow opportunists to enter the party.
