The ruling Awami League is in an awkward situation over the government’s failure to stop repeated question paper leaks and political corruption in the banking sector.
Awami League leaders and government officials have already expressed their concern over the issue saying that due to the mismanagement and irregularities in banking and education sectors, they are facing an embarrassing situation.
Mahbubul Alam Hanif, joint general secretary of Awami League urged the government to rein in irregularities and mismanagement in banking and education sectors to uphold its image.
“We hope the authorities concerned will take measures in addressing such irregularities immediately,” he said.

Hanif said: “Though the government has many achievements in a number of sectors they are marred by these failures.”
Sources from Awami League said that as question leak and corruption in banking by politicians have become a burning issue in the political arena, the ruling party is going to take stern action to stop these anomalies.
The leaders will sit with party president and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to discuss the issues soon after she returns from Italy, said sources at the Awami League chief’s office in Dhanmondi.
The government is trying to stop anomalies in these sectors but it has no idea how to do it, said Awami League Education and Human Resources Affairs Secretary Shamsunnahar Chapa.

Awami League leaders are considering a set of initiatives to solve the issues but are yet to take a final decision.
Awami League presidium member Pijush Kanti Bhattacharjee said: “We are thinking about a few ways to prevent question leak and corruption in banking sector. We have to stop these at any cost to save our next generation and the economy.”
Awami League adviser and Vice-Chancellor of Premier University, Chittagong Anupam Sen said: “The government has brought revolution in education sector but all achievements have been tarnished due to question paper leaks.”
He suggested the government can use digital methods to prepare question papers.
Sen also said: “Corrupt politicians are destroying our banking sector. They are ruining government’s development initiatives and achievement by misusing influence, which is not good for Awami League and the country’s economy.”
