Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the ongoing drives against corruption will continue, and that none of the guilty will be spared.

Highlighting Buet student Abrar Fahad murder, Quader said Sheikh Hasina’s government is working relentlessly in line with zero tolerance policy against law breakers, reports BSS. 

He was replying to queries from reporters after visiting the renovation work of the approach road of the Meghna Bridge at Meghna Ghat in Dhaka on Saturday.

“None of the guilty in the BUET student Abrar killing case have been spared even though they were Bangladesh Chhatra League leaders and activists. Those under surveillance will be brought under trial through the ongoing clampdown,” he said.

Referring to toll collection on the highways in different developed countries for road maintenance, Quader, also the road, transport and bridges minister, said his ministry has started work about realizing tolls from four-lane highways for their maintenance.

Noting that all renovation works of the three old bridges on the Dhaka-Chittagong highways will be completed by November 15, the minister said there will be no traffic congestion on the highways after the reopening of these three bridges.

Terming that Awami League does not want hostile relations with the opposition parties, he said: “We want opposition parties to play constructive and responsible roles in parliament. We are tolerant. They are speaking inside and outside parliament without any hindrance.

 “It has been possible only because the Sheikh Hasina government is in office, the Awami League general secretary said."

Regarding the Awami League national council, Quader said: The national council will be held in the due time. There will be some new faces in the new committee.

”The councils of Awami League’s associate bodies, tenures of which have expired before 7/8 years, will be completed by November, and the committees will be formed with the combination of young and elderly leaders."
