All corrupt people will be brought to book: Quader


DHAKA, Nov 11, 2019 (BSS) – Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said all corrupt people would be found out from all sectors to bring them to justice.

“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has initiated the anti-graft drives from own house (AL). Investigation is also going on to find out people of other parties who gained sudden wealth through corruption, he said.

Quader said corrupt people in the administration will also face the music.

The AL general secretary was addressing the council of Dhaka City South Unit of Awami Swechchhasebak League at Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) auditorium here.

Quader 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”.

AL Organizing Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Science and Technology Affairs Secretary Engineer Md Abdus Sobur, AL Deputy Publicity and Publication Secretary Aminul Islam Amin, Swechchhasebak League’s Council Preparatory Committee Convener Nirmal Ranjan Guha and its Member Secretary Gazi Mesbaul Hossain Sachchu and Dhaka City South Swechchhasebak League General Secretary Muhammad Arifur Rahman Titu, among others, were present on the occasion.

Dhaka City South Swechchhasebak League President Debashish Biswas chaired it.

The AL general secretary urged the leaders and workers of Swechchhasebak League to refrain from corruption, drug abuse, terrorism, tender manipulation, extortion and land grabbing.

He said there will be no room for extortionists, drug peddlers and corrupt people in the fresh committees of the Swechchhasebak League.

“Do not bring any opportunist in the organization only to increase the number of leaders and workers. We do not want opportunists, rather we want those workers who were with us in our bad time,” he said.

Quader said the committees of Dhaka City South and North units of Awami Swechchhasebak League will be announced on the day of the organization’s national council slated for November 16.

Earlier, the AL general secretary inaugurated the council of Dhaka City South unit of Swechchhasebak League by releasing balloons and pigeons.
