"We will have to cooperate with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as she has initiated anti-graft drives from her own house (AL)," he told the 3rd national council of Awami Swechchhasebak League at the historic Suhrawardy Udyan here.
Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the council of Awami Swechchhasebak League,
an associate body and the volunteer wing of Awami League, releasing pigeons and balloons.
With the playing of the national anthem, the national flag and the organization's flag were hoisted on the occasion. Singer Momtaz Begum performed a song in the function.
Awami League Presidium Members Matia Chowdhury, Kazi Zafar Ullah and Agriculture Minister Dr Muhammad Abdur Razzaque, AL Joint General Secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif and Jahangir Kabir Nanak, AL Publicity and Publication Secretary and Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud, Organizing Secretary and Deputy Minister for Water Resources AKM Enamul Hoque Shameem and Office Secretary Abdus Sobhan Golap were present in the council, among others.
Quader said the government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is turning the country into poverty- and beggar-free one.
The AL general secretary said Sheikh Hasina is the name of an honest politician and skilled statesman and diplomat in the country.
He said Sheikh Hasina does not do election-centered politics rather she works for changing the fortunes of the future generation.
