Silent Exit of the Caretaker Govt in Bangladesh January 14, 2009

Tags: , ,

The caretaker government has completed its tenure of 2 years after holding the general election on 29th December 2009 and taking of the oath by the ministers of the new government.
But the exit of the caretaker government was silent and the farewell was non-ceremonial.
We have seen the advisers had thier farewell meeting in their respective ministries in small scale and the advisers meet together to present bouquet to the Chief Adviser Dr. Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed and had a last talk together in the office of the Chief Adviser.
The exit of the caretaker government was virtually overshadowed by the vibrant beginning of the new politcal government.

There was not much discussion on the exit of the CTG in the media.

But the way of exit of the caretaker government was always a concern for the advisers and also for citizens and politicians.

The strategy of the caretaker government was also moulded to a safe exit of the government in the second year. The initial all aggressive military approach of the CTG was changed to more diplomatic civilian appraoch of the government. An Adviser of the Government in the 2nd year should be appreciated for his cool and calculative negotiating ability, Dr. Hussain Zillur Rahman,
who was ably supported by his ather collegues of the Advisory Council. He proves the skeptic wrong about his ability one of whom is Professor Anwer Hossain, the General Secretary of DUTA who had to be in Jail accused in connection of the university violence in 2007 who in his memoir told that HJR would be the worst selection as an adviser.

The exit was silent, but is it safe? Question of safety also discussed among the public and politicians alike. Many politicians and talk show ‘experts’ raised the question and always kept CTG on alert.The win of AL is a response of the public which may ensure the honor and safety of the advisors, atleast for the time being.

What did you think of Fakhruddin Ahmed’s Op-Ed piece on the Daily Star on the Gazan crisis? I quite liked it…
