Bangladesh won't be allowed to be playground of militancy, terrorism: Prime Minister
Mentioning that Bangladesh had been a country of militancy, terrorism and corruption under the BNP-Jamaat rule, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said the soil of Bangladesh will not be allowed to become a playground of militancy and terrorism again by any means. She directed all the law enforcing agencies including Bangladesh Ansar and VDP and also urged the countrymen to remain alert so that the anti-democratic and communal forces against the spirit of the Liberation War, BNP-Jamaat-Shibir and their cohorts could no longer destabilise the country.
Addressing the 34th National Rally of Ansar and VDP at the Ansar Academy in Shafipur (Gazipur) on Wednesday the Prime Minister also asked the Ansar and VDP members to discharge their sacred duty with utmost courage, professional skill, neutrality, transparency and accountability.“While discharging your duties, please behave decently with the people and also be compassionate to the hapless section of society, especially women, children and the elderly,” she told the Asar and VDP members. “Let’s all work to place our motherland in the world arena in a more dignified position,” she said. Mentioning that the country’s people have elected her party to run the government for the third time, the PM said that her government is committed to maintaining the continuity of development for the sake of the country and ensuring welfare of its people, according to UNB.
