Onion price to come down very soon, said the minister

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the party MPs against whom corruption allegations are coming up will be expelled if the accusations are found to be true.

"The party will expel them if the allegations brought against them are proved to be correct and they are convicted," he said on Monday.

Quader was replying to a question from reporters whether Awami League will take action against those MPs against whom the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is launching investigations, reports UNB.

While talking to reporters at the secretariat, Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said: "How can you take action before the allegations are proved? All the allegations may not be proved correct."

Responding to a query whether the party image is being tarnished due to the allegations against the MPs, Quader dispelled the notion saying that the government's honest courage is being proved with the action being taken against its own leaders.

"This is very important that the criminals are being punished by the government. I think the image of the government and the party has brightened instead," he said. 

Quader said onion price will come down very soon as he was assured by the commerce minister in this regard.
