Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said action will be taken against Jahangirnagar University Vice-Chancellor Prof Farzana Islam if the graft allegation raised against her is proved.
"She (the VC) is not above the law. She will face action if her involvement with any misdeed and moral turpitude is proved in the investigation," the Road Transport and Bridges Minister said replying to a query of the journalists at a press conference at the Secretariat.
JU VC has been blamed for bribing Chhatra League
leaders. According to a recent audio leak that went viral the VC gave Tk 1.6 crore as 'Eid salami' from the development project of JU. About BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir's demand for resignation of the JU VC, Quader said, "Mirza Fakhrul demands resignations of all. He demands Prime Minister's resignation. He demands his own resignation. After winning in polls he did not take his oath of office."
