The DMP has asked for the public’s cooperation to ensure public safety and peace in the city
Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), on Wednesday, said legal action will be taken if it finds programmes – involving gatherings and the use of loudspeakers – are held without permission.
Nowadays, different parties frequently arrange social, political and religious gatherings on public roads and use loudspeakers – without the permission of the authority, according to the DMP's press release.
These types of programmes create a hindrance to public movement as they block roads and create traffic congestion.
As per the constitution, every legal political party or community has the right to call for gatherings – or programmes – peacefully and unarmed, but it must ensure other citizens' convenience.
The DMP will take legal action against programmes involving illegal gatherings that create a hindrance to public movement and safety, as per the press release.
The DMP has asked for the public's cooperation to ensure public safety and peace in the city.
