Prime minister's directive and lawmen

PRIME Minister Sheikh Hasina has ordered the police to take whatever steps necessary to stop the ongoing violence in the country. The PM said: “I will take the responsibility for whatever happens (due to the action). But you will have to ensure the security of common people. You will take whatever steps are necessary against those responsible for burning and attacking people.” The head of the government's concern and urgency for people's safety cannot be disputed as we see a...

KNOT SO TRUE

Unless we stop…

“She stayed for 8 minutes!” “No, she stayed for 3!” “They thanked her for her almost-a-visit!” “No, they did not!” While we are incessantly discussing about failure of courtesies and indulging on how many minutes our Prime Minister stood near the gate of the Mrs. Zia's office while digging out past instances of who visited who when someone had died at some point, the rest of the world is moving on. The 'rest' includes our next-door neighbour, India, which has just celebrated its...

End to Political Impasse

Only if the two wish

Only if the two wish

Only Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia can now make a game-changing move to free the people from anxiety over the political turmoil.
