She urged the law enforcers to continue their drive against narcotics

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has hoped the police will continue their sincere efforts to maintain peace and discipline in the country, which is essential for economic development.  

"For economic development, maintaining peace and discipline is very essential, and this responsibility very naturally goes to the police force. I hope the police will discharge their duties with utmost sincerity as they are doing now," she said. 

The prime minister said this while inaugurating the operation of Community Bank Bangladesh Limited approved under Bangladesh Police Kalyan Trust. She opened it through a videoconference from her official residence Ganabhaban on Wednesday.  

With the sincere efforts of the police, Sheikh Hasina said, the government will be able to take the country forward where the next generation will have a beautiful and better life. 

She asked the police to gain the confidence and trust of people. "Every police station should be a beautiful and spectacular place. Those will be established as the place of trust and confidence of people."  

Terming narcotics as a social menace, Sheikh Hasina asked the police to intensify the drive in the coming days to eliminate this menace from society. 

"The drive will continue. Narcotics destroy family and society. The son kills his mother, his father, and brother kills brother for narcotics. To prevent such incidents, the drive against this has to be intensified. The nature of crime is changing as the world is evolving."  

The prime minister said the government has taken steps to train the police to cope with the changing world. Terrorism and militancy are not exclusive to Bangladesh; rather, they are problems the whole world faces, she said. 

Sheikh Hasina said the role of the police and other law enforcement agencies are commendable to curb terrorism and militancy in the country, as they laid down their lives. 

To train the police properly, the government has formed Anti-Terrorism Unit and Cyber Police Center, she said, adding: "They are showing their skills in the area, too."  

Recalling the horrible days in 2013, 2014 and 2015 when the BNP-Jamaat clique had unleashed a reign of terror in the name of movement, she said some 26-27 police personnel sacrificed their lives at that time.  

Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Kamal, Secretary (Public Security Division) of Ministry of Home Affairs Mostafa Kamal Uddin and Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Mohammad Javed Patwary also spoke at the program.  

Later, the prime minister talked to some police personnel in Rajarbagh Police Auditorium and Community Bank Bangladesh Limited officials at its Corporate Office in Gulshan through the videoconference.
