There is no specific security threat centering this year’s Pahela Baishakh celebration programme, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said.  

The minister said while talking to reporters after visiting DMP’s security arrangements at Ramna Park in the capital on Sunday. 

“There is no specific threat. Besides, detectives’ surveillance is on. No one will be able to create any obstruction in the celebration programme,” he said.

He said Pahela Baishakh has now become a national progamme and law enforcers have been kept ready across the country so that people can celebrate Pahela Baishakh smoothly.

Cyber Security team is also monitoring social media sites so that no one can spread provocative messages, said the Minister.
