“Media management is actually part of the Army training,” he said during an interaction with members of the Defence Journalist Association of Bangladesh on the sidelines of the Army’s winter exercise in Savar.
Blaming the media for sometimes creating rift by running “embarrassing” news reports about the Army, the General said, “We will help each other.”
A media cell is already there at the Army headquarters and it will work with the defence journalists, he said. “The Army is prepared to perform any duties as per the directives of the government.”
On the exercise, the director of the Directorate General of Military Intelligence, Mamun Ur Rashid said, “Our motto is ‘hard training, easy war’.”
