Sk Hasina has been released on paroll for 2 months hours back on the ground to have treatment for her illness in USA and Canada. He has already flied off to USA to be recieved at Boston by her son Sajib Wajed.[DS] [PA]

AL enthusiasts thronged at different spots to have a look of their leader. Members of central Committee sat with Sk Hasina to determine the political course of AL.Chief Adviser Dr. Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed had a talk over telephone with hasina [PA] and some advisers also met with Sk Hasina after the meeting.

AL decided to participate in the dialogue and the election.[PA]

Dr. Hussain Zillur Rahman, the adviser responsible for the dialogue in reply to a question said that the government is trying to look at the issue with more human attitude and to make a co-ordination between the law and humainity and is trying to get back the confidence of all in the process to progress to an effective democracy.

The move is new turn in the political drama as few days back, the release of Hasia and/or Khaleda was uncertain.

An ordinary citizen

Post script:

Dr. Kamal Hussain reacted sharply to the developments and said that the government must not be soft on corruptionists.[DS].
Ferdous Ahmed Quereshi of Progressive Democratic Party also condemned the act as a compromise on the part of the government. Khondoker Delwar of BNP said the release of Hasina is an outcome of underhand conspiracy of the AL with the Government. Hussain Zilklur Rahman, Adviser of the CTG said to the criticism that the Government is determined to have a free and fair election by 2008. He added that it is not necessary for the government to reply to all the questions.
Some parties also reacted to Dr. Kamal’s remark saying that they didn’t expect such a remark from a ‘guardian’ of the nation.[DS]

The ordinary citizen is feeling confused with the new developments. The politics in Bangladesh is real drama but who is conducting the present episode? It is true that people are not in the role of the main character and it is not clear who is going to be villain.

Prothom Alo, the leading Bangla daily flushed the main headline today with a sign of exclamation that ‘the penalized individuals will also able to compete in the election this time’.[PA]
Daily Star welcomes the review of the Emergency power rules[DS]

Dr. Kamal Hussain later accepted that that release of Hasina was done according to the law.

A journalist expressed his frustaion in staight language i n Prothom Alo[…]

Dr. Hussain Zillur Rahman is hopeful of making a balance between the legal complexity and humane attitude.
