Expatriates’ welfare and overseas employment minister Imran Ahmad on Saturday said that the country would send 1,000 people from each upazila overseas to provide them scopes to earn foreign currencies. 

Addressing a discussion marking the Community Policing Day at Rikabibazar in Sylhet, he warned people about dishonest meddle men.

Selling everything, including homesteads, to migrate overseas might often not succeed as dishonest middle men might pocket the money, said the minister.

The minister urged people to go abroad through the authorised government bodies.

The minister instructed the police men to respect the dignity of their uniform ensuring the rule of law and guarding people from disorder.

Lawmaker Mahmud Us Samad Chowdhury, Sylhet District Council chairman Luthfur Rahman, additional divisional commissioner Tahmidul Islam, Sylhet range police’s deputy inspector general Kamrul Ahsan, Sylhet metropolitan police commissioner Golam Kibria, additional deputy commissioner Abul Kalam, the district community policing’s coordination committee convener Mashuk Uddin Ahmad and others addressed the programme chaired by Sylhet district police superintendent Farid Uddin.
