No govt job if positive in dope test: Kamal

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said on Friday everyone has to undergo a dope test to get a government job.

“If anyone is tested positive in dope test, he/she will not be eligible for government jobs. The process for dope test will begin soon,” he said this while speaking as the chief guest at a meeting at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity (DRU) virtually.

The meeting was organised by Madokdrabbo Nesha Niroth Sangstha (MNNS).

The minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given approval to bring all government jobs aspirants under dope test, adding, “We have already brought those in government service under dope test. In particular, those in the security forces are being done dope test and action is being taken against those who are tested positive.”

He said the Department of Narcotics Control has been working against drugs and its abuse across the country.
