PM asks police to be alert against arson-terrorism’s recurrence

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today asked the police officials to remain alert against recurrence of arson-terrorism and ill-attempt to hinder country’s economic progress.

“Remain alert so none can impede the economic development of Bangladesh, none can dare to do arson-terrorism again and none can interrupt the security of people’s life,” she said.

The premier said this while addressing the high officials of Bangladesh Police at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) here on the occasion of Police Week-2023.

She said it’s alright that anyone will stage agitation and movement, but it will have to be done with people’s participation.

“If any destructive activity is perpetrated there, appropriate measures have to be taken,” she said.

Sheikh Hasina said today’s achievement of Bangladesh didn’t come in any way, rather the government has done it.

“This development of the country didn’t come in any way, we have to give labour, have to do work and have to formulate plan for it,” she said.

She also said the government has brought a massive change in Bangladesh as the outcome of its development activities.

The prime minister said, “In Bangladesh, we not only tell it, rather the entire world acknowledge it (development of the country).”

She said they have kept rolling the economic wheel of Bangladesh and done it very successfully facing Covid-19 and war (Ukraine-Russia) as well as maintaining economic policy strictly.

With many others, Bangladesh Police also has huge contribution to this development, she said, adding that, “So, none can disrupt this progress.”

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan and Public Security Division Senior Secretary Md. Aminul Islam Khan also spoke.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Chowdhury Abdullah Al-Mamun delivered the welcome address, while Additional IGP Kamrul Hasan gave the vote of thanks.

The premier also heard some high police officials.
