Take proper action against social diseases: PM to civil servants
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday asked the administration cadre officers to build a nice society taking proper measures against different social diseases like rape, terrorism, militancy and corruption, without considering the identities and political affiliations of the criminals.
“You’ll have to take appropriate measures against some problems such as rape, women repression, creation of juvenile gang, drug abuse, terrorism, militancy and corruption. Don’t consider the identity of anyone rather consider the criminals as criminals,” she said.
