Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today asked administration cadre officers to take proper measures against social ills like rape, terrorism, militancy and corruption, without considering the identities and political affiliations of the criminals.
"You'll have to take appropriate measures against problems such as rape, repression of women, creation of juvenile gangs, drug abuse, terrorism, militancy and corruption. Don't consider the identity of anyone, rather consider the criminals as criminals," she said.
The prime minister said a criminal is a criminal, no matter which party they belong to. "So, you'll have to build the society nicely taking proper measures against the perpetrators considering them as criminals. We want that you will do it," she added.
The prime minister was addressing the certificate-giving and closing ceremony of the 116th, 117th and 118th Law and Administration Training Courses at Bangladesh Civil Service Administration Academy in the capital's Shahbagh area through a videoconference from her official residence Gono Bhaban.
State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain presided over the function, while Public Administration Secretary Shaikh Yusuf Harun delivered the welcome address. Rector of the BCS Administration Academy Badrun Nessa placed the report on the courses.
A total of 116 cadre officers -- 70 males and 46 females -- participated in the three five-month training courses, and all the participants completed the courses successfully through online classes amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
