PMO-RUMOUR-DIRECTIVES 2 LAST DHAKA

Talking about the recent phenomenon of child lifting rumours which lead to
lynching of several innocent people, the meeting asked the law enforcement
agencies to take prompt legal actions against those who’re involved in
circulating rumour and lynching incidents.

It put emphasis on involving local public representatives, teachers and
other local dignitaries in creating social resistance against the rumour and
lynching incidents.

It also stressed the need for conducting campaign through television
channels to make people aware against such rumours.

To face the ongoing flood situation, the meeting instructed the
authorities concerned to reach relief materials, including rice, safe
drinking water, dry and cooked food, among the affected flood-victims in
time.

The meeting asked the authorities concerned to form medical teams in the
flood affected areas to prevent spread of diseases and take preparation for
rehabilitation measures during the post-flood period.

The ministries concerned informed the meeting that they have taken enough
measures to tackle the ongoing flood situation.
