Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal  vowed that Bangladesh  will not allow anyone to enter Bangladesh illegally through the borders.

He made this remarks while replying to questions from journalists over the Myanmar issue at the his secretariat office in the capital Dhaka.

The Home Boss told that some 330 Border Guard Police, military and government officials fled Myanmar and took shelter in Bangladesh. We have sent back them to their country through our foreign ministry, he added.

We have sent back  them through a very good arrangement, he further added.

We're not going to let anybody enter the country illegally, we're not going to let anyone else infiltrate  our borders, he continued.

The senior minister also told that Bangladesh has given shelter to many Rohingyas.

He urged  the government of Myanmar, all the countries around the world to take steps for their repatriation to their own country as soon as possible.

Replying to another question, Kamal said, "This time they (BNP) did not participate in the election. So they can't claim to be the opposition now. They are another political party, as there are many smaller parties.”

Referring that the BNP leaders were in jail for various reasons, the home minister said, "The judges thought that they should be granted bail, they were granted bail, we have nothing to do here, we have nothing to say."
