Home minister

“There are CCTV [cameras] everywhere in the capital and we are taking support of those … We are not sparing anyone,” he said while talking to reporters at the Secretariat today.

“We have achieved Bangladesh’s independence through the Liberation War. The people of this country will not tolerate violence here,” he said.

Replying to a question about an allegation that three people torched a bus in front of police, the home boss said, “Police caught the arson attackers red-handed.

“BNP got detached from people following the arson attacks carried out in 2014-2015 and if they [BNP] do it again they will again be detached from the people of the country,” the minister added.

Referring to the remarks of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that Awami League released BNP leaders Gayeshwar Chandra and Amanullah Aman after detention due to the new US visa policy, Asaduzzaman Khan said, “The prime minister spoke clearly about the US visa policy and we have nothing to say.”
