‘Violent politics risks huge growth potential in Bangladesh’ June 20, 2008


‘Bangladesh will risk its huge growth potential for development and the country’s future if it return to confrontation and violent politics’ said junior British Minister for International Development Shahid Malik.[DS]

He added that Bangladesh has huge potential in development and growth that can be realized through greater investment in education and health.

He opined that confrontational politics of 2006 will have to be thrown into the rubbish bin of history for the country to move forward towards the future. He added that the politicians and political stakeholders will have to bear that responsibility.

Shahid Malik was on a visit to Bangladesh recently.

I see no escape from confrontational politics vehemently practised prior to 1/11. If it has to be “thrown into the rubbish bin of history”, then most of our politicians because of being corrupt, downright dishonest have to be eradicated. That’s a quite distant possibility for now.
