Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has warned the party leaders and activists that stern action would be taken against if they go against party discipline.
“No matter how influential public representative he or she is…none will be spared if the person does not follow the party discipline,” he said on Thursday.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, was addressing a conference of Akkelpur upazila Awami League in Joypurhat online from residence in Dhaka on Thursday.
Speaking as the chief guest, Quader said Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken tougher stance on the party discipline.
Talking about Companiganj incidents, he said those involved in the incidents will not be spared and drives are on to arrest the perpetrators.
“Besides, those who will be found involved in corruption and misdeeds will not also be spared,” Quader said, adding that the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and the law enforcement agencies have already been instructed to this end.
He stressed the need for considering the inclusion of the dedicated leaders in the party committees, saying: “The dedicated leaders are the life of Awami League and they should be kept in its committees.”
He urged the district and upazila unit Awami League leaders not to place any seasonal leader in the committees.
The minister urged the party leaders and workers not to announce any anti-people program. “People are our strength and ensuring service to them is our main goal,” he added.
He asked the Awami League leaders and activists to be united aiming to make the party well-organized and stronger. About the politics of BNP, he said the party is now aimless after being failed continuously and slipping from the politics of power.
