After taking oath as home minister for a second consecutive term, Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has reiterated his stance of taking all out measures to free Bangladesh of the menace of militancy and illegal drugs.

“My responsibilities have increased by leaps and bounds as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has trusted me with a second term, and I will try my best to upkeep her faith in me,” he told BSS in his reaction after the swearing in ceremony at Bangabhaban on Monday.

Describing his reappointment as the home minister a big challenge, he said: “I will definitely give my best possible effort to root out militancy and stop abuse of drugs from the country in line with the government’s zero tolerance policy against the menace.”

Kamal also expressed firm determination to make the law enforcement agencies, particularly police, as friends of the people to ensure participation of the general people in maintaining law and order.

He expressed his optimism that Bangladesh would become a middle-income country by 2021 along with materialization of Vision 2021.

“We have become role model for the rest of the world in curbing militancy and terrorism due to successful drives against the menace by the law enforcement agencies,” the home minister said.

He added that the country has also been seeing massive progress under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Hasina.

Kamal was elected MP from the Dhaka 12 constituency in the 11th general election, held on December 30.
