Papiya, whatever her identity is, will face justice as an ‘offender’ based on what crimes she has committed, said Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday, according to media reports.
Awami League General Secretary told: “The government has not let any criminal from
inside or outside the ruling party off the hook, and law enforcement agencies are taking action against all criminals.”
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, came up with the remarks replying to a query from reporters at the secretariat about the allegations of criminal
activities against expelled Jubo Mohila League leader Shamima Nur Papiya.
Asked whether the names of Papia’s patrons will be revealed, the minister said there is no reason not to do so.
Replying to another query, Quader said if they were aware of Papia’s criminal activities earlier, he said she would not have gone so far.
The government has taken a ‘zero-tolerance policy’ against any crime, and the law enforcement agencies are taking action accordingly, the minister added.
“Papia has been expelled from the party. Expelled means for life, while suspension is temporary,” the minister asserted.
