General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said Awami League will emerge as a smart and modern political party through its upcoming national council scheduled for December 20-21.

General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said Awami League will emerge as a smart and modern political party through its upcoming national council scheduled for December 20-21.

“There will be no room for extortionists, tender manipulators and land grabbers and drug dealers in the new committee,” he said.

Obaidul Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, came up with the assertion while addressing a meeting with the party’s Rajshahi divisional representatives at the city in the afternoon.

He also called upon the grassroots level leaders to update the party’s local committees of affiliated wings, which tenures have already expired, before the national council.

“If leaders are failed to update the committee, the incumbent committee will be dissolved,” he said.

Sounding a note of caution that the party men who are indulged in criminal activities will not go unpunished, Quader said there is no need of opportunists in the party’s leadership.

“We want leadership with a clean image in the party,” the AL leader said. 

The minister said the ongoing crackdown against corruption, drugs and militancy will continue not only in Dhaka but also across the country.

Awami League is going to hold the 21st national council amid the party’s purification crackdown against the casino and illegal business across the country.

Sheikh Hasina, in an informal meeting with her party’s senior leaders at the Gonobhaban recently, asked leaders of her party’s all associated bodies to hold their council within the timeframe.
