During a recent pitha festival at the Shaheed SI Shiru Mia Auditorium in Rajarbagh Police Lines, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Habibur Rahman he affirmed the commitment of the police to uphold neutrality and adhere strictly to the election commission's guidelines in the forthcoming national elections scheduled for January 7, 2024.

"Our focus is on facilitating a peaceful election process through unbiased involvement," he stated at the event held on December 28.

The festival, which Commissioner Rahman initiated to boost morale among the police force, was also an occasion for him to reflect on the cultural significance of pitha in Bangladesh. He noted that pitha, traditionally made with newly harvested rice during the onset of winter, holds a special place in Bangladeshi culture and is widely celebrated.

"Given our demanding duties in the police force, opportunities to partake in such cultural festivities are rare. Since all members of the DMP are like a family, we've organised this pitha festival as a celebration within our family," he added.

The event was attended by several high-ranking officials, including DMP Additional Police Commissioners AKM Hafiz Akhter, Moha Ashrafuzzaman, Munibur Rahman, DB Chief Mohammad Harun or Rashid, along with Deputy Commissioners and police officers of various ranks.
