Patriotism is a must to curb trans-border crimes

THE lawmakers and law enforcers blamed each other for the nexus of the administration with drug peddlers and criminals at the border coordination meeting on Thursday held at the Border Guard Bangladesh headquarters presided over by Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan. The meeting was attended by five ministers, 46 lawmakers from bordering districts, eights divisional commissioners, 32 deputy commissioners, IGP, top brasses of the law enforcement agencies and border guards, newspaper report said.
First of all, we like to appreciate for arranging such a meeting where country's overall crime scenario was discussed. Special focus was given on stopping cross-border crimes, including human trafficking and drug smuggling along with relations with Indian and Myanmar border forces--- the only two bordering countries we have.  Such type of meeting should be held in a regular basis. The last meeting on similar agenda was held on December 24, 2017.
In the meeting, a ruling party MP of Dinajpur-3 and whip raised question how criminals and drug peddlers could visit the houses of government officials and hold meeting with them. They categorically alleged that different social programmes are organised by officials in their localities getting funds from criminals. However, Chattogram Divisional Commissioner reportedly countered the remarks.
It may be sound unpleasant but reality is that, the nexus between a section of government officials including police and hardcore criminals is nothing new. One can easily find it if observe the crime scenario in the bordering districts. As an example, country's southeastern bordering district Cox's Bazar has now become a safe haven for criminals, particularly Yaba godfathers. Currently, it becomes too hard for the government high-ups to stop the Yaba business despite taking several stringent measures.
It is impossible to run a crime syndicate without active patronisation of law enforcement agencies and local elected representatives. The situation is identical in all bordering districts. It's clear that, fighting against drugs and other trans-border crimes is not possible by police alone. It needs a coordinated effort involving BGB, Coastguard and other agencies to stop illegal activities through the border.  But first off all, it will need sincerity and patriotism of our officials and people's representatives to get a positive result.
