Grand Political Rally: Lessons Unlearned
I can not relate the basis of BNP-Jamat’s fear about this grand rally. Why has the current government shown unreasonable fear and anxiety about the action plan of their counter part? Why have they played a childish game by calling transportation strike on the eve of the grand rally (dramatic call of strike and its end right after the rally)? Has that reduced the number of audience and participants in the grand rally? How does a grand rally impact a sitting government? A popular nationalistic BNP-Jamat government should not be subject to this kind of baseless fear. They should have come up with their own action plan to encounter this 23 point program and present their achievements to the general public that could make more sense. Don’t forget that People are the base and heart of democracy. Why does this critical lesson remain unlearned all the time? I know people have answer for that, too.
