The Awami League general secretary asks party members to motivate people to wear masks properly

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has urged people to wear masks for protection against Covid-19 infections, saying that the mask is more effective than the vaccine.

Quader made the remarks at a function at Bangabandhu Avenue on Thursday, organized by the party's relief and social welfare sub-committee on the occasion of distributing Covid safety materials among the party’s delegates.

He asked the sub-committee to form teams at grassroots level to motivate people to wear masks properly.

“We must build a fortress of awareness in every house,” said Quader.

The Awami League leader also said that the country has enough jabs it needs now and more vaccines will come from different countries in phases.

He expressed hope that there would be no crisis with the vaccines.

Responding to a question about wealth statements from MPs and ministers, Quader said: “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is running an honest and transparent government. Her government's stance against irregularities and corruption is very strict and clear.”

“No one including the MPs and ministers is above accountability and the Anti-corruption Commission (ACC) is free to investigate and take action against any crime as an independent body.”

The ACC has already taken action against many leaders and activists while the government has not interfered to protect anyone, he added.

Quader further said: “No one should have any objection in submitting the statement of assets. I am ready to give the statement of my wealth myself.”

“The ACC can also take action if it finds any discrepancy in the tax returns filed every year.”

Awami League Presidium Member Begum Matia Chowdhury presided over the function.  

Among others, Awami League leaders Abdur Rahman, SM Kamal Hossain, Sujit Roy Nandi, Reazul Kabir Kausar and Syed Abdul Awal Shamim, Kulsum Smriti MP, President of the Institute of Diploma Engineers MA Hamid and General Secretary Shamsur Rahman also spoke at the occasion.
