PV Desk : Alerting all concerned in Awami League to stop intrusion of pseudo-Awami Leaguers into the party, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said the intruders in guise of ‘termites and bugs’ should be driven out of the party.

“Since 1975, Awami League was not in power for 21 years. That time the party carried out movements facing hard time, not with weak organizational capability but a strong footing,” he said while addressing a conference of representatives of six organizational districts at King of Chittagong here.
