'Drive against graft, irregularities to be conducted everywhere'

Bangladesh Awami League General Secretary Obidul Quader on Friday (Sep 20) said the drive against corruption and irregularities will be conducted across the country.

“Everywhere in the country where there’re irregularities and grafts, drives will be conducted there. It’s not only about Jubo League and Chhatra League, those who will be found involved in corruption in Awami League, will face the same fate,” he said.

Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, came up with the remarks at a press conference at its Dhanmondi office, local media reported.

Asked whether Awami League is embarrassed over the allegations raised against its associate bodies, he said, “We’re happy as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has become more popular with the action she has taken as it has brightened the image of the party and the government.”
