Prime Minister Gives a Call to Curb Corruption to Eradicate Poverty


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said none would be spared for graft practices and wrongdoings regardless of his or her party affiliation to have a poverty free Bangladesh by 2020.

“Poverty cannot be eradicated without curbing corruption,” Hasina told an anti-poverty rally at the Bangabandhu International Convention Centre amid boycott by the main opposition BNP and its alliance partners.

“Those who make wealth through corruption and siphon off money abroad will not be let off,” said the premier.

The Anti-Corruption Commission would work independently to curb corruption, said Hasina while addressing the rally as the chief guest.

Speaker Abdul Hamid, who presided over the rally, said the process of poverty alleviation is linked to good governance and corruption.

“Curbing corruption and ensuring good governance are the preconditions for having a poverty free society,” the speaker said.

The national committee on poverty organised the rally in the capital and other parts of the country marking the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
