Inspector General of Police (IGP) Javed Patwari on Thursday said law enforcement agencies have adequate preparation for the upcoming national poll.

The preparation for polls taken by the law enforcement agencies is better than any other time in the past, he added. “If the current political environment continues, we can give a fair poll to nation,“ the IGP said.

Javed Patwari came up with the remarks while talking to reporters at the city’s  Nirbachan Bhaban.

“We’ve come here today to inform the chief election commissioner (CEC) and the Election Commission (EC) about our plan for polls. And it was a part of our regular meeting,” he added. Denying the complaint of Oikyafront that police department is not under the EC now, the IGP said the complaint is unreal.  “The whole administration, including police, is now under the EC,“ he added.

Patwari didn’t respond while asked about attack on Oikyafront chief Dr Kamal Hossain. 

Additional  IGP Mokhlesur Rahman, DMP commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia, DMP Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime Unit chief Monirul Islam were also present.
