He blames BNP for not taking actions against corrupt people

Road Transport and Bridges Minister, and Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has asked the leaders, and workers of Bangladesh Chhatra League to conduct their activities so as not to become news headlines for wrongdoings.

“Bangladesh Chhatra League leaders, and workers should not be embroiled in getting headlines for bad activities, rather they should be subjects in news items for positive doings,” he said on Monday.

The minister was addressing a program arranged by the Awami League Sub-Committee on Relief and Social Welfare at Nabab Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Bhaban on Dhaka University (DU) campus marking the 73th birthday of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

A total of 73 students of DU Bangla Department were given scholarships at the function. The prime minister is an alumnus of the department.

National Professors Dr Rafiqul Islam and Dr Anisuzzaman, Dhaka University Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman, and Bangla Department Chairman Bhishmadev Chowdhury, also spoke at the program.

The Sub-Committee Chairman AFM Fakhrul Islam Munshi chaired the program, and its Secretary Sujit Roy Nandi moderated it.

Quader asked the Chhatra League men to do politics following the ideology of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who dreamt of building a society free from corruption, deprivation, and injustice.

Referring to the countrywide drives against corruption, extortion, and tender manipulation, Quader said BNP is criticizing the government’s steps against corruption but they should thank the government instead.

The Awami League general secretary said BNP is a self-confessed corrupt party as it scraped section 7 of the party’s constitution to allow corrupt persons to become party leaders.

He also said BNP had established “Hawa Bhaban” which was designed to establish a reign of corruption, and malpractices.

Blaming BNP for not taking steps against corrupt people, he said: “Awami League is now taking actions against corrupt, extortionists, and tender manipulators. None will be spared for wrongdoings.

Quader said politicians are usually seen to ponder over the next election, but Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina thinks for the betterment of the next generation.

He said the countrymen will remember two personalities forever; one is Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman for liberating the country, and the other one is Sheikh Hasina for earning economic emancipation for the people.
