Senior Correspondent: Awami League (AL) general secretary Obaidul Quader said that the party will not allow someone as member who is from war criminal’s family, against the spirit of the Liberation War and communal minded.

The Road Transport and Bridges Ministry told this to the reporters at the conference room of Road Transports and Highways Department in the Secretariat on Thursday.

Obaidul Quader said, “Nobody will be allowed to become member of AL if he/she is against the spirit of the Liberation War and is communal minded whether he/she is from BNP or Jamaat. AL believes in the same policy for children of war criminals too. The party believes in the spirit of the Liberation War will not compromise the matter.”

When asked about the killers of Barguna Rifat murder, he said, “I fully agree with the Home Minister on this issue.”

The Minister said, “No Killer will be spared even after he is found involvement with the ruling party. Actions must be taken, no matter the perpetrators who are.”

Obaidul Quader said, “The party president is very strict over the matter. There is no scope to show laxity for the culprits from the party. Steps were taken against many party members who were found involved in criminal activities. Nobody involved in crimes is being spared.”

“The incident occurred at Pahartoli in the port city Chattogram is also being probed,” he added.
