Dialogue the only way out
Ordinary people are passing their days in great tension over what may happen after 24th October as the government and the opposition are still adamant in their positions. Despite political instability, Bangladesh has made impressive economic and social progress over the past decade with steady annual economic growth of 5-6 percent. Bangladesh has also made momentous progress in MDGs. If this political rivalry goes on, Bangladesh might lose its track. Keeping this into consideration, the civil society should organise a dialogue between the two political parties. I would like to request politicians to create an environment where all the political parties can participate in a free and fair election which will ensure the country's stability and progress.
