Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir thanked Communist Party of Bangladesh and Bangladesher Samajtantrik Dal for observing a peaceful hartal across the country on Tuesday.
The home minister conveyed thanks to the CPB and BSD while talking to reporters during a meeting with the leaders of Christian Community at his secretariat office, reports Bangla daily Prothom Alo.
Asked about police barricades on different city roads during the hartal hours, the minister said he knew nothing about such incident.
CPB and BSD have been observing the daylong countrywide hartal since 6:00am Tuesday demanding a ban on Jamaat politics, ensuring speedy war crimes trial and trial of those responsible for Tazreen Fashions fire incident.
He informed the Christian Community that the government has taken foolproof security measures on the occasion of Christmas Day.
Any chaos on that day will be resisted with utmost strength, the minister said.
