Staff Correspondent: Reaffirming that corruption will not be tolerated, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has asked to keep more vigil against corruption and ensure punishment so that this menace does not affect the country's development projects in any way.
The Prime Minister said this at a meeting of the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) at the NEC Conference Room in the capital's Sher-e-Bangla Nagar area on Tuesday.
Planning Minister MA Mannan briefed reporters about the details after the meeting.
The premier also said it would be very regretful if every achievement of the government that is materialised by round-the-clock hard labour goes in vain just because of corruption.
