What`s the status of democratic practice in BNP?

Ahmed Rafiq

Tarique Rahman, a relatively young and accused of corruption, becomes the top leader and decision maker in BNP exceeding the party`s veteran and experienced leaders, following the dynastic political norm. In the absence of Begum Zia, party`s senior leaders are now accepting his leadership unhesitatingly. In the name of following the `chain of command`, the way BNP leaders and activists adhere to dynastic rule in the party, in such situation the practice of democracy is absolutely ridiculous here. Of course, expecting democracy from a party that originated from `cantonment` is also an idiocy.

`Where heart is fearless, head is high`

Mainul Hosein

Politicization of all the professions cannot be democracy. Through the process, democracy has been weakened. If the people`s rule and democracy are to be given opportunity, the structure of the one-party system must be broken. Living in fear, insecurity is derogatory to an independent man. Freedom is synonymous to an independent life. We cannot deny our rights to justice and freedom.

The problem remains

Student politics

Abu Saeed Khan

Although Awami League acting general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif termed the recent crisis of BCL after forming its central committee as `little incident`, in reality it is not very ordinary. Through this, the moral and ideological decline of student politics has been exposed. Ideal politics and practice of democracy both are needed to overcome these problems.
