Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the ongoing drives against corruption, drugs and criminalization will continue until the menaces are uprooted.

“The prime minister has said that no guilty person should be spared, even if the person happens to be affiliated with the ruling party,” he said.

Quader spoke of the matter with reporters at the Secretariat on Monday.

He said the prime minister had ordered senior leaders, law enforcement officials and high officials not to compromise and spare any godfather, extortionist, tender manipulators, drug smugglers or any other corrupt person or groups.

“She also spoke about breaking the cycle of corruption and not to compromise with anyone,” the ruling Awami League general secretary said.

Many are being arrested at the district level for corruption during the ongoing drive. “It will continue until criminalization and corruption are uprooted,” he said.

Quader said the media should have run reports on these matters.

“Criminal offenders, irrespective of their political affiliations, will not be spared,” the minister reiterated.
