Police Headquarters has instructed all of its units, including specialized units, across the country, to take all-out security measures to ensure the safety of people's lives and property as well as to protect state assets to keep public life normal during the three-day blockade of road, rail and waterways across the country that will begin from Tuesday morning.

BNP and like-minded opposition parties on Sunday announced to enforce a three-day blockade of road, rail and waterways across the country from Tuesday morning to mount the Awami League regime to quit and hold the next election under a non-party neutral administration.

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami also announced on Monday that the party will also enforce the blockade simultaneously from Tuesday morning to Thursday evening demanding the current government's resignation and installation of a non-party neutral administration to oversee the 12th parliamentary election.

Sources at the Police Headquarters said that it has already given necessary instruction to the police units across the country to beef up security alongside increasing vigilance to avert any untoward incidents during the countrywide blockade program.

In a statement on Monday evening, the Police Headquarters requested the public to help by calling the national emergency number 999 if any information on the deterioration of law and order and vandalism across the country.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have taken security measures to ensure the safety of people's lives and property as well as to protect state assets to keep public life normal.

The RAB Headquarters in a press release in the evening said that the elite force will deploy more than 300 patrols of 15 battalions to ensure nationwide security. In addition, nationwide intelligence monitoring activities will continue.

If anyone plans any kind of sabotage or violence, he will be immediately identified and brought under the law.

Special teams and striking force reserves have been kept to deal with any emergent situation. RAB Forces will be deployed round the clock across the country to prevent any acts of vandalism and violence.
