Bangladesh politics now Orwell’s Animal Farm

Says ex-adviser Hafizuddin
UNB

A former adviser of Caretaker Government M Hafizuddin Khan has compared the present political situation of Bangladesh with English writer Gorge Orwell's novel Animal Farm saying that here nobody has the right to differ with the government, reports UNB. He made the remark while addressing a seminar on corruption arranged by Nagorik Oikya at National Press Club yesterday. He said currently country's political situation is nothing but an 'electoral dictatorship' and a massive movement is a must to get out of this situation. Dr Salehuddin Ahmed, a former governor of the Bangladesh Bank said, the corrupt people who are responsible for the mismanagement of the banking sector are not brought under proper punishment.

He said the overall graft practices are being encouraged by of political corruption and lack of people’s participation in the ruling system. Professor Dr Asif Nazrul of Department of Law of Dhaka University said, ‘I feel sorry when I hear that the corrupt persons are more vocal about the ideology of our Liberation War and I think those who are taking the advantage of the ideology, are, mainly, betraying with the ideology’. He said the main reasons of present corruption are absolute concentration of power and lack of accountability. According to him, presently the institutions of the government are totally under the power of a handful of people. Professor Anu Mahmud, member-secretary the National Committee to Protect Oil Gas Mineral Resources Power and Ports, said the economy of the country is being run by the remittance and labor’s money but some corrupt people are merely looting it.

He said, ‘there are two groups of ‘fundamentalists’ in the country, one is religious fundamentalists and another is ‘fundamentalists in government’ and the second group is not caring about the people’s demands of getting rights’.
