Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal today has urged the Press Club authorities to be vigilant to prevent outsiders from entering the National Press Club.
He made the call after the ‘Police Memorial Day 2021’ program at the Police Staff College in the capital’s Mirpur on Monday afternoon.
“The police do not usually enter the Press Club. Brick-bats were thrown at the police from inside on Sunday. One or two policemen may have entered there. Police fired tear gas to bring the situation under control,” said Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, adding: “It’s a strategy.”
The Home Minister further said the Press Club authorities should take the responsibility to ensure that no outsider can enter the National Press Club.
Addressing the journalists at the time, Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, “The Press Club is yours. Make sure you have this responsibility.”
