After taking oath as home minister on Monday for the second consecutive term, Asaduzzaman Khan reiterated his stance of taking all out measures to free the country from the menace of militancy and illegal drugs.
“My responsibilities have been increased by manifolds as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina keeps her trust on me for the second terms and I will try my best to honour her faith in me,” he told when BSS asked for his reaction after getting reassignment as Home Minister.
Describing the second assignment as a big challenge, he said, “I will definitely give my best possible efforts to root out militancy and stop abuse of drugs from the country in line with the government’s ‘zero tolerance policy’ against the menace.”
The minister has expressed firm determination to make the law-enforcement agencies particularly police as friends of the people aimed at ensuring participation of commoners in maintaining law and order.
He expressed his optimism that Bangladesh would become a middle-income country by 2021 with materializing the vision 2021, but the BNP-Jammat regime
militancy activities was being patronized and set up its network in the country.
“We have become role model for the rest of the world in curbing militancy and terrorism due to successful drives against the menace by the law enforcement agencies,” the home minister said.
