Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said the ongoing anti-graft drive will be carried out in all sectors in the country including political parties.
“Not only in Awami League, but the purification drive will also be carried out against people of other political parties and administration who have become wealthier through corruption,” Quader said warning that the corrupted people in all sectors will be traced out.
He was addressing the council of Dhaka City South Unit of Awami Swechchhasebak League at Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) auditorium in Dhaka.
“Sheikh Hasina’s anti-graft action has begun. Bangabandhu’s daughter [Sheikh Hasina] has proved that she belongs to honest courage and thus she initiated the anti-graft drives from her own house [AL],” Quader also the road transport and bridges minister said.
Claiming that the prime minister is marching forward with her dedication and achievement, Quader said, “Like her father Bangabandhu, she is heading forward amid life risk. No evil force will be able to halt her progress if we are united under the ideology of Bangabandhu.”
BSS adds: Quader also said a single bad work can spoil 10 good works. That is why, he said, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina initiated the drives against wrongdoers to bring them to book”.
