'Corrupt people won't be spared'

'Corrupt people won't be spared'

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader issued the warning that those who are involved in corruption are under surveillance and none of them will escape punishment.

He came up with the warning while addressing the triennial council of Narail district AL as the chief guest at the Sultan Mancha of Narail Government Victoria College in Narail on Tuesday. Quader said, "All the corrupt people across the country remain under surveillance. Actions will be taken against them soon. None of them will be spared."

Quader, also the general secretary of the ruling Awami League, urged the party leaders and workers to make Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's purging drives against terrorism, corruption, drug abuse and extortion, successful. "You should say 'no' to corruption, terrorism, drug abuse, tender manipulation and extortion," he added.

Urging to protect the dedicated party activists and not to include activists from outside of the party, the minister said, "It is impossible to become a leader by showing billboards rather it requires popularity. There is no necessity to include 'hybrids' in the party by going around the dedicated leaders and activists".

Bangladesh has become an epitome of development and it has been possible to bring the killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and war criminals to book as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina are in the state power, he said.

With Narail district AL President Advocate Subhas Chandra Bose in the chair, AL Joint General Secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif and Abdur Rahman, Organizing Secretary Abu Sayeed Al Mahmud Swapan, Labor and Manpower Affairs Secretary Habibur Rahman Siraj, Central Working Committee Members SM Kamal Hossain and Parvin Zaman Kalpana, lawmakers Kabirul Haque Mukti, Masrafe Bin Mortaza and Sheikh Sharhan Naser Tonmoy attended the program, among others.Narail district AL General Secretary Nizam Uddin Khan Nilu moderated the council.
