Jalil's observations

Recently, two senior leaders from the two major political parties came to the limelight for their sensitive and thought evoking comments about their own parties and top leaders. Of them, the comment/observation of Mr. Abdul Jalil, the former general secretary of the ruling AL, has stirred the whole political environment. The DS even wrote an editorial on the matter in its September 27, 2009 issue.
Since the last general election that gave the AL and its grand alliance an overwhelming majority, the opposition BNP all along is telling that the AL came to power through some sort of secret arrangement. Mr. Jail's recent disclosure that his party reached some sort of understanding before the last general election will further substantiate the claim of the opposition. In fact, the pre-election activities of the diplomats of a few countries and their relentless efforts to bring some changes in governance of our country was a very common subject of discussion of the people who cared about the matter.
Why Mr. Jalil came out with this disclosure is difficult to understand. It may the spontaneous grievance ventilation of a neglected party veteran or it may be his conscience that drove him to speak out on this very important matter. However, it is true that he will not be allowed to board the AL boat as a honourable member and he has already been branded “mentally imbalanced.” But he can do some favour to the nation by disclosing details of the understanding. There is a rumour that our neighbour played a vital role in the matter. The recent foreign minister level talks in India indicate a new way of understanding between the two unequal neighbours but the question remains whether it will be a win-win game!
