Don’t want to see the return of burning people alive: PM
Abrar Hussain of DOT :
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the government does not want to see people burning alive as was happened in 2014 and 2015 in the name of resisting election and ousting the government.
“We saw the horrible picture of burning a man alive… such horrible things cannot be committed by any normal person… what happened in Bangladesh in 2014 and 2015 was just unbelievable. We don’t want such incidents to take place in Bangladesh in the future,” she said.
The Prime Minister was speaking at the closing ceremony of the 107th, 108th and 109th Law & Administration Courses at Bangladesh Civil Service Administration Academy in the morning, reported UNB.
3,900 people were injured and 500 killed in 2014 while hundreds of institutions and vehicles and transports were vandalized, said the premier.
The Prime Minister asked the newly recruited public servants of the country to perform their duties aiming to develop Bangladesh imbued with patriotism and affection for people. “Honesty is the real power…you have to discharge your responsibilities with sincerity and the attitude of dutifulness towards people.”
Hasina asked the public servants to build the country in such a way so that its people could walk in the world arena with dignity.
The Prime Minister directed the employees of the republic to remain vigil against terrorism, militancy and drugs as these evil menaces can destroy a family, society and country. “Whenever you work, keep this in mind always.”
