Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said the government, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, has taken a tougher stance against corruption and irregularities.
He said this while addressing a coronavirus safety gears distribution programme through videoconferencing from his official residence here.
AL relief and social welfare sub-committee arranged the relief and coronavirus safety gears distribution programme at AL president's Dhanmondi political office in the capital.
Quader said the government has taken a firm stance against the irregularities and graft, and the "purification campaign" Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had introduced in the country will continue.
The premier had launched the anti-casino drive and following this a drive continues against the vicious circle involved in corruption and irregularities in the country's health sector, Quader said.
"None from outside helps the government identify all these irregularities. But, on its own initiative, the government has launched a harsher drive to stop irregularities," he added.
