THAKURGAON: State Minister for Home Affairs Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said BNP-Jamaat have long been threatening to launch anti-government movement, but they have failed to do so. A movement never succeeds unless people get involved in it.

He was talking to journalists at the Thakurgaon District Circuit House on Saturday afternoon. Later, he exchanged opinion with the senior government officials regarding the law and order in the district.

The State Minister said people have no involvement in BNP-Jamaat's movement. People don't want violence, killing and arson.

He also rejected the possibility of holding a mid-term election and said that if BNP-Jamat starts movement for mid-term election and try to create 'reign of terror' in the country, kill people, burn government and private properties, the law enforcing agencies will not sit idle. They are more strong than before. They will perform their duties.

Dabirul Islam MP, Prof Yasin Ali MP, Selina Jahan MP, Deputy commissioner Mukesh Chandra Biswas, Superintendent of Police Abdur Rahim Shah Chowdhury, Rangpur divisional DIG of Police Humayun Kabir and BGB Thakurgaon  Sector commander Col Akram Hossain were present.

The State Minister further said the law and order prevailing in Thakurgaon, Panchagarh and Dinajpur districts is satisfactory.

About the border killing, he said that a peaceful situation is prevailing in the border areas. BSF are not using bullets, rather they are now using rubber bullets. So the rate of border killing has come down. The problems are being solved through flag meetings. Within a short time the border agreement will be finalised.

Regarding drugs, he said it is true that drugs and Yaba pills are coming from India and Myanmar. The BGB are now more vigilant on the Myanmar border than before. The Yaba tablet smugglers are now being caught and punished. The government is trying to conclude border agreements with Myanmar.  

About Nur Hossain he said Nur Hossain is being held in India in a case. For legal complications it is being delayed to bring him back. Once the legal complications would be over he will be brought back to the country.

Earlier the State Minister visited a children's hospital run by a NGO Echo Social Development Organization and Lokayan Museum. He also placed wreath at the alter of 'Aparajaya-71'.

Later, he exchanged views with the officers and members of Ansar-VDP.
