Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Wednesday told that law enforcing agencies have taken all out preparation for  preventing  any efforts of criminals to create instability in the upcoming the parliamentary polls 

He made this remark while speaking to journalists after an event at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the capital Dhaka, marking India's recognition of Bangladesh on December 6, 1971.

The Home Boss also claimed that elections are a festive time. 

However, some criminals from their hideouts try to create untoward situations and destabilise the situation. But our security forces are ready to thwart any untoward incident, the minister vowed. The security forces are working as per the directives of the Election Commission and will continue to do everything to maintain law and order, he continued.

Regarding the latest border killing, the home minister said such killings eventually saw declines.

He said Bangladesh and India hold regular dialogues both at the BSF-BGB level as well as at home minister-level meetings.

"We always say there should be non-lethal weapons used if needed. But sometimes we see some events. We will continue to work on it," added the minister.
