Joy and Tarique
The perpetuation of the dynasty rules and the culture of obeying two leaders of the Mujib & Zia families have become the norm in our politics. Bangabandhu & Zia, by dedicating their lives to the freedom struggle, earned the right to lead the country. But the same cannot be said about the later day Sheikhs and Zias. As long as the ruling and opposition parties retain their outdated, feudal organisational structures, where sycophancy, nepotism, and ad-holism rule, a revival of their past glory will be a far cry. So can Joy and Tarique as leaders help?
How much Joy and Tarique, with practically no experience or real experiences in ground level politics, will be able to understand a country struggling to recover from the agrarian crisis is anybody's guess. If they were so keen on entering politics they should have started from the grass-roots.
Anyhow, the induction of both Joy and Tarique come as a welcome change. Their leadership promise to be dynamic. While they still need to hone up their political skills, parties will be glad to get new and young leaders with a broad vision and a zest for public service.
