Chhatra League faces PM's wrath

On September 7, the premier expressed her dissatisfaction with Chhatra League top brass during a meeting of the Local Government Nomination Board.

A former minister, currently a presidium member,      said the prime minister was so furious with them that at one point of the meeting, she said that would dissolve Chhatra League central committee.

During the meeting, other leaders, including Quader, pointed out several allegations of bribes taken for approving unit committees.
