Minister quite incredibly asks

Commerce Minister Hafizuddin Ahmed yesterday asked the garment owners to open fire in case of attacks on their factories in future.

“Sometimes you have to be tough. You can wait for one or two incidents and then straight fire on the attackers to save your factories,” he said referring to the recent labour unrest in the readymade garment sector.

The minister was speaking as the chief guest at a meeting with the garment owners at Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) office in Dhaka.
