Failures of Awami League government
I remember that when the Awami League government came to power through a landslide victory in election, people were so happy with the prospect that they will live better lives under the Awami League government.
BDR mutiny occurred soon after Hasina came to power and quite a few brilliant army officers were murdered.
The share debacle happened due to conspiracy by some of the influential AL leaders and withdrawal of huge sums of money from the market. Incurring huge loss due to the debacle, a handful of people committed suicide. Share debacle was also occurred when the AL came to power earlier in 1996.
Due to sacrifice of the martyrs, Bangladesh achieved democracy a few years ago, but very recently, a significant number of people were murdered in political violence and many people lost their limbs for the same. Train accidents are now commonplace, so are the accidents related to other vehicles.
There were corruption charges against some ministers that have been published in the dailies. Padma Bridge project is one of the biggest scandals of the AL government. Any tangible progress has not happened in the past five years. Eventually Abul, the ex-communication minister had to resign from his position on charge of the scam in which a few other influential people tied to the government were also allegedly involved. Surprisingly, Abul had been declared as a patriot by our honourable PM Sheikh Hasina.
The 20 billion dollar garment industry has become very unstable due to lingering of chronic problems that could not be successfully resolved by the incumbents.
AL popularity has decreased dramatically, which is evidenced by the five city polls held recently where AL candidates had been defeated by a great margin by their BNP counterparts.
Realising the shortcomings of her government, Sheikh Hasina wants to cling on to power by holding elections under her and keeping out BNP from participating.
