The ruling Awami League will not introduce any party leader, who are involved in corruption, in the next general election. Party’s General Secretary Obaidul Quader has issued a note of warning in this regard on Tuesday.
Obaidul Quader said corrupt leaders will not get the party nomination in the next general election.
The AL leader and also Road Transport and Bridges Minister came up with this warning while speaking at a programme at Thakurgaon district council auditorium marking the distribution of warm clothes among the cold-hit people.
“The Awami League leaders who are engaged in tender manipulation, extortion and bribery won’t get nomination from the party. Stay away from these misdeeds… still there’re opportunities,” Quader said.
He said Prime Minister and AL President Sheikh Hasina sent them there cancelling the secretary-level meeting to stand by the cold-affected people without wasting time soon after she saw the lowest temperature hitting Panchagarh.
Turning to the cases filed against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, the ruling party leader said none of the cases were filed by the Awami League government. “The cases were lodged during the caretaker government. But, BNP is blaming Awami League for all this.”
He also claimed that whenever any disaster hits any area, BNP leaders visits it and leaves the place after a photo session.
Quader said Awami League will stand by the people affected by the biting cold as long as the bad weather lasts.
