“It is the job of the BNP and Jamaat to make arrangements so that the people of Bangladesh suffer. If you (BNP and Jamaat) want to engage in terrorist activities and damage the achievements of Bangladesh, I want to tell you categorically that the law will take its own course, the law will be implemented strictly,” he said.
