Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said the law enforcers would work under EC directives in the Dhaka City Corporation elections.

He said this while replying to the question of journalists after addressing the chief guest at Golden jubilee celebration of the Sher E Bangla School And College in Madhubag of the capital on Friday.

“The election and Swaraswati worship are on the same day but the matter is with the Election Commission. We have nothing to do here, law enforcers will act as they wish,” Home Minister said.

There is no threat to law and order on the occasion of elections and worship, he added.

The minister said the government is giving utmost importance to education. For this reason, free books are being handed over to students across the country on the first of January every year. At the same time, the literacy rate has risen to 73 percent. 

Engineer Hasanuzzaman Tipu, President of the Golden Jubilee Celebration Committee, presided over the function where Principal of Sher-e-Bangla School and College Dr. Abdus Sattar, governing body President of the organization, Sufi Sultan Ahmed were present among others.
