Scoring the political parties from Day 1 January 2, 2009

Tags: , ,

The general election is over. AL wins a landslide victory. On the other hand, BNP suffered an unimaginable defeat.

Out of 299 seats contested, AL and its’ allies got 262 seats (AL 230,JP 27,JSD 3,WP 2,) BNP & its allies 32( BNP-29,JI-2,BJP-1),LDP-1, IND-4.

In percentage, AL got 49.02%, (in 2001 it got 40.13%), BNP got 32.74% ( in 2001 it got 40.97%).people's mandate

In round figure, BNP got 2,30,86,460 votes (in 2001 it was 2,28,33,978).AL got 1.14 crore vote more) than BNP in 2008.

AL acknowledged that the magnitude of victory they have attained in the election was beyond their speculation. It bestowed on AL extra responsibility to fulfill the dream of the people. People will follow every footsteps of AL from Day1. In the same way they will also observe BNP and its allies who form the opposition.

Immediately after the result Hasina called for calm and urged the party men not to go into festivities.Later in the press conference , she invited the support of opposition to build up a prosperous Bangladesh. She offered the post of the deputy speaker and proportionate representation in the parliamentary committees to the opposition. We think this is a positive step from day 1 for AL.

It was difficult for BNP to swallow the result with such a huge margin of defeat.Khaleda refused to accept the result and said that it is the result of long conspiracy of Election Commission and Caretaker Government to make a party win and form the next government. Common people will take it as a failure on the part of BNP to accept the reality.
After one day, CEC said people will not accept any dishonor and disrespect to the verdict they have given in the election.

BNP corrected itself and somewhat accepted the result saying that they would prefer ‘elected goovernment’ over ‘non-elected’.They want to see AL to form the government and they will observe their performance.

I think the people of Bangladesh knew about their country more than any politician and when given a chance they show their maturity and wisdom by voting.
Awami league should get over the fixation of BNP as Khaleda was doing but go for problems facing the entire world due to global meltdown, Sidr etc.Nearly 600 of illegal immigrants from bangladesh and Myanmar left in open sea by Thailand shows the respect the nation commands.It has to work hard instead of thinking about religion.Bengal thinks today what world thinks tomorrow. Your Nobel Laurette has shown the way for Indians and all poor in the world.
Wish your nation all the best.
