Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister, Obaidul Quader on Thursday warned the AL leaders and activists that stern action would be taken if they go against party discipline.

Speaking as the chief guest, Quader said AL President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken tougher stance on the party discipline.
Speaking about Companiganj incidents he said those who involved in the incidents will not be spared and drives are on to arrest them.
“Besides, those who would be found involved in corruption and misdeeds will not also be spared, the AL general secretary said the Anti-Corruption Commission and the law enforcing agencies have already been instructed to this end.
He stressed the need for considering the inclusion of the dedicated leaders in AL committees, saying “The dedicated leaders are the life of Awami League and they should be kept in its committees.”
