AL against ban on student politics: Obaidul

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said that his party is not in favour of the idea of banning student politics.

"We do not support banning student politics. Those who will engage in any misdeeds in the name of student politics, to be brought under the ambit of law," he said.

Talking to journalists at Rajshahi Circuit House on Sunday, Obaidul Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said, "Cutting head to cure headache is not a solution."

The minister is scheduled to join the meeting of the divisional party representatives in Rajshahi.

Earlier, he was given a guard of honour on the Circuit House premises.

"A cleansing operation has began in the party at the directives of the Prime Minister. The drive started against drug, gambling, tender manipulation, corruption and other misdeeds," he said, adding, "The drive started from our party and it will continue."

UNB adds: Asked about the ongoing drives against casino business and corruption, Quader said all those  involved in such activities are under the surveillance of law enforcers.

Replying to a query about the absence of Jubo League Chairman Omar Faruk at its presidium meeting and about his bank account enquiry, Quader said it will be known later whether he is under surveillance or not.

Quader said, “We want a smart, modern Awami League. We don’t want any polluted blood in the party.”

The AL general secretary aksed the grassroots-level leaders to form new committees (of those which have expired) before the AL national council and negligence of anyone in this regard will not be tolerated, he warned.
