The Budget session is started. On the 11th of June the Finance Minister MA Muhith will place the first budget of the new government to the nation. The FM declared that the budget will be a big one surpassing 1 lakh crore of Taka with big share for ADB, though many experts caution the government against the big budget.
The Budget session may also discuss the some national vital issues like Transit, Timaimukh,BDR Report etc.
BNP is still not in a decision to join the session on the plea that the government is not allocationg enough seats in the front row. If BNP take it too sensitively , they will miss the Budget session.
But the ordinary citizens want them to be in the Budget session. For the people it is important that the budget would be critically screened and the national issues will be discussed in detail for which the presence of opposion is manditory.
If BNP does not attend the sesion, it will be looser more than the government party and people will be deprived from a lively session.
BNP should avoid the old tactics and try to understand the changed attitudes and aspirations of people where parties will be judged on the positive contribution of the parties in strengthening the democracy and the country.
People will understand the state of the opposition but at the same time they expect the oppostion to be vibrant in the parliament.
An ordinary citizen
BNP also skipped the session during the Ramazan on the same plea.
BNP is avoiding the present session also despite the repeated plea from the Speaker.
Who would escape a class for days together- not necessary a good student, a bad student would always search excuse to avoid his lessons.
BNP plea has turned into a lame excuse and only exposing its weakness as a party and its lack of commitment in parliamentary practice. Their members of parliament will remain backbenchers not only physically but also in quality of parliamentary debate.
BNP is not only in frustration, it is frustrating the people. The days of negative politics is over. The people will judge you on the degree of positive contribution you made to the country and for the democracy.
