DHAKA, Director General of Bangladesh Ansar and VDP Major General Kazi Sharif Kaikobad today said the paramilitary force will work to prevent rumours.
About 61 lakh field level personnel of the force will make people aware of the fatal consequence of rumours (that lead the incidents of mass beating), he said while speaking at a viewexchange meeting with journalists at the AnsarVDP headquarters in the capital.
Noting that superstition triggers rumours, Kaikobad said a message has already been sent to AnsarVDP men deployed at rural level to sensitise people not to believe in rumours over Padma Bridge construction.
The message has been sent to Ansar leaders deployed at village and union levels. Upon receiving the message, 61 lakh Ansar members will make general people aware of it, he said.
The Ansar and VDP chief said about 12,500 Ansar commanders at village, union and upazila levels have been brought under allowance coverage. Besides, he said, the AnsarVDP members are being imparted training.
