Sylhet, Aug 30 (UNB) – Referring to the party’s debacle in the Sylhet City Corporation (SCC) polls, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday said actions will be taken against the leaders and activists who acted against the party.
“Those who were engaged in self-destructive activities during the SCC polls won’t be spared. They’ve to face exemplary punishment,” he said while addressing rally organised by district and city units of Awami League at Registrar ground marking the National Mourning Day.
Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, further said, “I haven’t come here to deliver speech, but to look into the allegations raised about the SCC election.”
In the SCC polls, BNP's Ariful Haque Chowdhury defeated Awami League mayoral candidate Badar Uddin Ahmed Kamran. Many blamed the defeat on the betrayal by some Awami League leaders.
