The Home Ministry has banned all types of legitimate arms and demonstrations from January 30 to February 3 to make the election of two city corporations free, fair and peaceful.

The ban was issued on Monday by the Home Ministry’s Deputy Secretary Abdul Jalil.

It said that the election of Dhaka North and South City Corporation will be held on February 1. A circular was issued from the Political Branch of Public Safety Department-6 to make this election free, fair and peaceful.

The Arms Act of 1878 section 17 (a) (1) prohibits the carrying and display of legitimate arms.

At the same time, the Home Ministry said that necessary action will be taken in the Arms Act against violators.
