Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Saturday said the United States’ visa policy is an internal matter of that country.

“To whom the USA will issue visa or not is completely the decision of that country and Bangladesh has nothing to do with the matter,” he said.

The home minister said this after inaugurating the indoor playground at Satkhira Police Lines in Satkhira.

According to US officials, the visa policy will be applied against the persons who will create barriers to holding the next general election, he said.

Asaduzzaman said it is quite natural that political parties would place and agitate on the street with their demands ahead of the next elections.

He hoped that the polls would be held in a free, fair and peaceful manner as per the constitution and all registered political parties would participate in it.

Local Awami League leaders Md Nazrul Islam, Asaduzzaman Babu, Mujibur Rahman and Khulna Range DIG Mainul Haque were present.

About BNP’s road march program, the minister said if BNP tries to carry out any subversive activities or arson attack in the name of politics, the law enforcement agencies will deal with them accordingly.
