Ruling Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday wanted Anti-Corruption Commission action against corrupt firms like Regent Hospital and JKG in the health sector.

‘The ACC has the authority to take action by investigating corruption allegations,’ Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said in a video message form his residence in the capital.

He also invited the commission to conduct inquiry against his ministry people if there was any allegation of corruption.

Referring to the COVID-19 test scam, he called on the law enforcement agencies to accelerate investigation against the two institutions involved in it and bring the accused to justice.

There is no political identity of the wrongdoers as they use the identities of different parties to hide their offenses but they finally cannot protect themselves, he said.

He said that preventing coronavirus infection, addressing flood situation and arranging

cattle markets following the health guidelines were the three major challenges for the government right now.

Apart from mutual cooperation, sincerity and affection, strong morale is needed to overcome the ongoing crisis, he said.
