PV Desk : Terming making money illegally ‘a disease’, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today warned that her government will not allow anybody to lead a lavish life with stolen money.

“Someone will lead a luxurious life with the illegally-earned money, while someone will suffer from miseries by leading an honest and simple life – it cannot be tolerated,” she told the inaugural function of triennial council of Dhaka North and South City units of Bangladesh Awami League at the historic Suhrawardy Udyan here this afternoon.

Sheikh Hasina, also the president of Bangladesh Awami League (AL), reaffirmed to continue her government’s ongoing drive against corruption, saying that the hard-earned money of the people will be spent for their welfare, not for leading lavish life by anybody.

“We’re continuing our drives against terrorism, militancy and narcotics … we’re also keeping up our drives against graft and these drives will go on. Because, the hard-earned money of the people will be spent for their welfare, not for leading a lavish life by anybody,” she said.

The prime minister said leading an honest and simple life is a matter of huge honour than having ‘biriyani’ and ‘pulau’ (rich food) and wearing brand clothes or other things through the illegal money.
