Be ready to offer a fair election: home minister to DCs
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan today asked the deputy commissioners to get ready to ensure a fair and acceptable national election, expected to be held early next year.
He came up with the remark while talking to journalists after the meeting with the DCs in the last session of the three-day 'DC Conference-2023' at Osmani Memorial Auditorium in the capital.
"We said our security agencies are now capable of facing any challenges; they will be able to tackle any situation with their patriotism, experiences, and abilities during the elections," he said.
"Indeed, we will not have anything to do at that time [during the election]. The ministry will only do its routine work. The main responsibilities will remain on the Election Commission, and security agencies will also be under them," the home minister said.
"You [DCs] stay ready to offer a fair election, as your roles in holding the elections are crucial," he said, adding that the country's people have been seeking a fair and acceptable election, as well as the entire world.
