"All necessary preparations have been completed to hold a peaceful and hassle-free Biswa Ijtema. We are ready to face any unwanted situation regarding it," he said.

Taking about the upcoming upazila elections, the state minister said, "If they (BNP) do not take part in the upcoming elections, the party's existence may face a threat."

Over 100 nurses from nearly one hundred government hospitals participated in the seminar.

The seminar was also attended by several high officials of the CRP, including its coordinator Valerie Ann Taylor and executive director Md Shafiqul Islam.
