Scrapping CTG: A fatal mistake
Majority in parliament is essential for smooth functioning of a government but absolute majority blinds the govt. absolutely. By doing away with the caretaker government (CTG) system the AL government has proved this truth again. They have scrapped the CTG with the excuse of implementing the apex court's verdict. But they did not follow the advice of the apex court which said the next two elections could be held under CTG, for the sake of peace and public interests.
This is a fatal mistake. If the government had minimum sincerity to settle the matter amicably they would not have passed the 15th Amendment Bill so hastily. Now Begum Khaleda Zia thinks political confrontation is inevitable. Actually, crave for power and lust for retaining it have made the country's political sky cloudy and the common people's life miserable. We urge the government to give up political opportunism, the opposition BNP not to take any harsh decision like hartals and the civil society to come forward to save the nation from any kind of unwanted situation.
