PV Desk : Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader here today said Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has launched actions in a bid to uproot weeds and other bad elements from Awami League and all of its affiliated bodies to keep the party’s image intact.

“Not only in Dhaka and Chattogram, the purification drive will be conducted across the country to uproot the weeds from the party,” Obaidul Quader said while addressing as the chief guest at the representatives meeting of the six organising committees of Chattogram divisional Awami League at a local community centre this afternoon.

Hailing the recent drives by the law enforcers, Quader said tender manipulators, grabbers, extortionists and corrupt persons will be eliminated through the crackdown.

He said law enforcement agencies have already taken a hard-line stance in the light with the zero-tolerance policy of the government against drugs, corruption, abuse of power and other irregularities.

“No matter, how the wrongdoers are politically influential, they must not be spared,” said Quader.
