Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said that the implementation of zero tolerance policy against militancy is the biggest challenge now.

He said, “We did not allow militancy to continue before, we will not allow it to happen in the future.”

He said these at his capital’s Secretariat office on Tuesday after the new home minister sworn in.

He said, “We want to be in tough position against drugs. Like before, the government will also have the Zero Tolerance policy against drugs. It will be removed from society at any cost.” 

The minister said, “More work will be done than any other time to counter terrorism. Our law enforcing agencies are working very effectively to counter terrorism. They are now more prepared to face any challenge to maintain the law and order situation.”

The minister also said, “If BNP wants to do any movement in the future, they can do it. Because, it is a political party’s democratic right. But if there is any violence in the name of movement, then it will be resisted at any cost.”

Responding to a question from the reporters, the minister said, “I have also served the ministry before, the tasks which have not been done before, will have to be done. That’s the big challenge.”
