Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said the drive against corruption and drug would continue.
"There will be no compromise with crime, corruption and drugs and the present government will continue its ongoing drives until the menaces are uprooted," he said
Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said this in responding to a question at a press conference at the Secretariat on Monday.
The Minister said the Prime Minister had ordered senior leaders, law enforcers and high officials not to compromise with and spare any godfather, extortionist, corrupt, tender manipulator or drug smugglers.
"She also spoke about breaking the cycle of corruption and not to compromise with anyone," the ruling party leaders said.
Many are being arrested at the district level for corruption during the ongoing drive. "It'll continue until criminalisation and corruption are uprooted," he said.
Most of the alleged people have gone underground after the recent drives against the casinos, the minister said.
Whoever the criminals are none will be spared, he said this expressing the government's determination to continue drives to uproot these unethical activities like corruption, drug trafficking, terrorism and crimes.
Criticizing the activities of the BNP, the ruling party leader said if the BNP plays positive role in politics, they should congratulate the government for operating such drives by the law enforcement agencies.
"BNP has no courage to apprehend those who were involved in corruptions because of 'Hawa Bhaban, Khowab Bhaban' during their regime. BNP is jealous as the popularity of the government has risen due to the drives against corruption," he added.
"Criminal offenders, irrespective of their political affiliations, won't be spared,' the minister reiterated.
In response to another question about the corruptions of GK Shamim, the minister said the media should find out the matters and publish reports.
