Prime Minister and Bangladesh Awami League chief Sheikh Hasina has asked leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League to pursue politics in line with principles, ideology and patience and issued a strong warning that none will be spared for any wrongdoing.

"You should not be indulged in any work that can destroy the confidence and trust of the people… you will have to value the confidence and trust of the people," she said when a delegation of Chhatra League, the student wing of Awami League, called on her at Ganabhaban in Dhaka on Thursday evening.

Acting president of Chhatra League Al-Nahean Khan Joy and acting general secretary Lekhak Bhattacharjee led the 23-member team.

After the meeting, PM's Deputy Press Secretary Hasan Jahid Tusher briefed reporters.

Sheikh Hasina told the Chhatra League leaders: "We have given you responsibilities upon confidence and trust. If you fail to keep up that dignity, there is no need to you."

The prime minister also advised the leaders and activists to be humble, saying: "We do not expect that the students will show off their power after going to power … you will have to be humble as long as you will go to the top."

She said the government became hard on Jubo League after Chhatra League. "Social anomalies will have to be removed and we will not tolerate clashes and killing with casino," she said.

The prime minister said she is developing the country through hard work. 

"But, I will not allow any black spot to be put on it … I will not spare any wrongdoer," she said.

The premier said how the foreigners came to the casino and how they got their visas -- all things will be probed. 

"If anybody tries to obstruct this work, he or she will be dealt with iron hands," she said.
