CHATTOGRAM Castigating the BNP leaders for dubbing the ongoing anti-graft drive as a mere eyewash, Information Minister Dr. Hasan Mahmud today suggested them to see their own faces in looking glass before unethically falsifying any pro-people programmes of the government.
The current anti-corruption onslaught is not directed against the BNP leaders but those indulged in corruption and misdeeds, he said.
He went on saying that the drive is not only being carried out against those in the Awami League, but the wrong doers including grabbers, extortionists and corrupt persons within BNP will be rooted out through the crackdown, the information minister added.
The ongoing drive against corruption and irregularities are not only against his party men rather the government is also looking into involvement of BNP leaders with casino business and corruption, Hasan said.
The minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had taken steps to eradicate corruption from her own party. Then, she will take action against the wrongdoers and corrupt people of BNP, he added.
The minister further said the government actions against corrupt people are not being taken beyond the law and the drive will go against corrupt people of all parties.
