Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir yesterday said the present government was committed to completing the war crimes trial within its tenure, overcoming all obstacles.
"The anti-liberation force is trying to halt the trial. But their efforts will not succeed," he told a function at Bangladesh Shishu Academy in the capital.
Terming Jamaat a "militant party patronised by BNP", Alamgir said Jamaat attacked police, hampered the study of students and destroyed the time of working people, aiming to make the country unstable.
“We must resist Jamaat and those who patronise it at any cost,” he said.
Urging all to perform their responsibilities properly, the home minister said the country cannot move forward without the contribution of mass people.
The Awami League government, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, was trying heart and soul to accelerate the country's progress, Alamgir told his audience.
“Major bridges in the country had been constructed during the regime of Awami League government. The Padma Bridge will also be built by the present government,” he said.
Highlighting his government's success in the education sector, the minister said the government was working sincerely to ensure higher education for all students by introducing diploma courses at technical institutions at the district level.
Environment and Forests Minister Hasan Mahmud, State Minister for Health and Family Welfare Mojibur Rahman Fakir, among others, spoke at the function organised by Bangladesh Family Welfare Visitors' Association.
