The two ladies' personal ego has been causing this crisis every 5 years. Unless they quit their respective posts, we will have to put up with their whims indefinitely.
These two ladies do not care at all.
Another good analysis. It is true that the nation is held hostage! Only the media can strongly help to get out of this crisis. Hope constructive journalism continues.
“Why should we as a people be deprived of a growth rate of 6-plus percent just because AL and BNP want to fight?” Like it or not, 80+ percent people vote for these two parties.
Sheikh Hasina has made it a personal competition between her and Khaleda Zia about who can be more unbending, and Khaleda Zia seems to be taking up that challenge. It does not matter to them if the country suffers in the process.
We all have to pull together and think deeply over this matter as to how we can get rid of this vicious circle. Both the leaders would be held responsible for any unhappy situation.
Sir, what you wrote is nothing but truth. Can I, a common man, file a case in a court against the presidents of the two leading political parties for the day-to-day mess they have been creating on the road in the name of hartals and andolons.
The people have the right to peacefully demonstrate against the policy of the government. The key word here is 'peacefully'. However, the tendency of these political parties is to create havoc through burning buses, private cars and killing people during demonstration. Public should sue the leaders of these parties for the damage, not only at personal level, but also at national level.
I would like to see the whole episode just from a different perspective. Let's imagine, BNP is in power and holding the views that election will be held under their leadership. Would you be able to write the same prescription?
