Reshuffle of the cabinet : who are the real bosses? January 10, 2008

Reshuffle of the cabinet took place with 5 new advisers’ sworn in in place of 5 advisers’ who resigned earlier. Among the five, except Ayub Quardi, adviser for education and cultural affairs, four others didn’t resign by their own self.It would be interesting speculation who made the four advisers to resign.

The ordinary citizen is not an insider rather he is a distant observer of the event. The following is a mere hunch by him to understand the inside of the story.

To make resign four advisers’ is not a one man’s job. Neither the Advisory Council took the decision collectively against the four colleagues of them.

It is likely that a strong decision making body took the step to overcome the present difficulties through which the caretaker Government is passing.

I am remembering the speech of the Chief Adviser on the 27th September 2007 in the General Assembly of UN where he said,

‘Bangladesh represents an effective model of civil-military cooperation in crisis prevention.Our experience in crisis management could be relevant for many crisis torn, nascent democracies’.

I was also following a round table discussion, organised by Prothom Alo, the leading daily, which held on 5th January 2008 on the different policy suggestions for the Caretaker Government where the proposal for dropping some advisers was placed in a more consolidate way. Not unlikely that some from the citizen groups may contribute as policy makers for the decision making body of the present government or they themselves form part of the decision makers.

If the failure to run the ministries effectively is the cause of resignation of the 3 advisers, for Barister Moinul Hussain the matter may be different; may be it is policy conflict; as he materialized successfully some very important agenda of the government including the separation of judiciary amid much opposition and criticism from the political parties and others.

The perfectness of the decision will be judged by the future events and on the achievement of the transition of power to the democratic forces through a free fair election in a corruption free environment.
