The prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, on Monday said the joint force will continue their drives until the last militant and terrorist in the country, engaged in destructive acts since January, is caught.

‘The joint drive will continue to resist subversive activities of the militants and terrorists so that they cannot reassemble and prepare for doing so again,’ she said, reports United News of Bangladesh.
The prime minister was speaking at a video-conferencing with the district development committees of Manikganj and Sunamganj at the cabinet division conference room.
She said every person of the country needs to remain alert so that no subversive and militant activity could take place in the country in the future.
‘The police, RAB and BGB have to stay alert all the time in every place of the country. If any subversive activity happens in any place of the country, the joint force will conduct drives right away,’ PM said.
Hasina said the government has to ensure all-out security for the people of the country. ‘So, we have to remain alert and vigil and ready to protect them,’ she said.
The prime minister said this joint operation will continue until this sacred land of Bangladesh is freed from militants and terrorists. ‘We must work together to that direction,’ she added.
Hasina criticised BNP chief Khaleda Zia for what she said her destructive activities since January 5 taking Jamaat with her side.
‘I don’t know what the BNP chief had wanted, she kept herself confined to her Gulshan office and supplied petrol bombs and cocktails,’ she said.
Hasina said Khaleda Zia will be treated as a ‘hated person’ for her destructive politics.
