October 27, 2019 00:00:00

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Saturday urged all not to be misled by rumours rather to stay alert against any evil move to spread propaganda, reports BSS.

"All, especially the law enforcers, should stay alert about rumours so that any misinformation cannot spread through social media like Facebook. We saw such kinds of things in Bhola, Ramu and even Nasirnagar," he said, speaking at a function as the chief guest at Rajarbagh Police Auditorium here on the occasion of the Community Policing Day-2019.

Calling on the community police to stop rumours, the home minister said police have to face many challenges everyday and but their first task is to ensure that false information cannot spread.

"We have made the country free from terrorism and militancy. We can get rid of drugs too." Asaduzzaman said.

None involved with drugs will be spared, he said, adding that legal action will be taken in this regard.

He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given the country a new height through her development activities as per the dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

As the government has introduced the community policing system to ensure better security for the people, both the police and common people should work together to this end, he added.
