No irregularity to be tolerated: Quader


Narayanganj, September 15: Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said no-one will be spared if found involved in irregularities as the government has adopted a zero tolerance policy against it.“For the first time in the country, organisational action has been taken against  president and general secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) for breaching the party discipline and there’s no such instance in any political party,” he said while visiting Bhulta Flyover work in Rupganj uapzila.

Punitive action has been taken against the BCL leaders and they were forced to resign from their respective posts, he said adding, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina herself is monitoring the current situation and BCL activities.”

Talking about the Bhulta Flyover, the Awami League leader said the four-lane flyover has been built at a cost of Tk 375 crore and the authorities concerned opened it for traffic without any formal inauguration though Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate it through a videoconference later.

Superintendent of Police Harun-or-Rashid and Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mamtaz Begum Hasan were present.
