As per the Election Commission directive, the law enforcement agencies are ready to face any kind of unwanted attack and chaos that might occur in the polling centres during the election, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said.

The minister was speaking to reporters during a rally in the Karwan Bazar area on Wednesday.

When asked, whether there were any possibilities of chaos or attack in election centres, the minister replied: "Our intelligence and law enforcement personnel are very active. They have effectively eliminated militancy, terrorism in the past. They are well prepared to face any obstacle.”

About the death of two people in clashes during election campaign on Tuesday, Kamal said: “The people are with Awami League. Awami League does not do the politics of killing. The ones who do the politics of killing have burned people to death in the past. And they are behind such attacks now as well.” 

“Our security forces are very efficient. They are ready to face any attack and chaotic situation. Those responsible for the attacks will be identified by the law enforcers and be brought to justice,” he added.

Kamal also said: “The people are the biggest source of power in the country and they will fight terrorists. The power will change through the mandate of the people. We have appeared in a battle of the ballot.”

He also said: “We are trying to build an enlightened country and to keep its continuity, people's mandates are needed.

“We are calling upon the people to vote for Sheikh Hasina once again.”
