PV Desk : Terming the wrongdoers and opportunists as weeds, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said they want to wipe out the weeds from the party in the Mujib Year.

“Those who stayed with Awami League in its well and woe will be made leaders of the party,” he told the triennial council of Kotalipara Upazila AL on the premises of Upazila Parishad here.

The AL general secretary urged the leaders of the party at grassroots not to make any room for opportunists and wrongdoers in party committees.

If committees are formed avoiding devoted and dedicated workers, Awami League will hardly find any space to breathe, he observed.

Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said Bangladesh had achieved independence under the leadership of undisputed leader of this soil, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and now the country is gaining economic emancipation under the leadership of Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The minister said Sheikh Hasina has earned repute all over the world because of her courage, honesty and dynamic leadership.
