Dhaka, Mar 26: Jatiya Party (JP) Chairman H M Ershad on Saturday said that there is no existence of militancy in the country, rather he claimed it is being overstated by some quarters colouring terrorism as militancy.

 He, however, said the crimes occurring in the country are the activities of terrorism, not of militancy.

Ershad came up with the remarks after paying homage to the liberation heroes at the National Memorial at Savar.

 He said, the country cannot reach to its expected goals even after passing 45 years of the independence. The country retreats again and again for political destabilization. I cannot understand the term `militancy` much more. But I believe that the crimes occurring in the country are activities of terrorism, not of militancy.”
