Politicization of Bureaucracy February 23, 2011Posted by bdoza in BANGLADESH.
Finance Minister MA Muhith told a hard truth that bureaucracy lost its effectiveness due to politicization.
He made the comment while talking to the journalists. He also added that Bangladesh should introduce American type of political bureaucracy where the senior bureaucrats would be changed with the change of the government.
Whether American system would be good for Bangladesh, it is revealed that the main fault of bureaucracy in Bangladesh lies in its politicization.
But Finance minister forget to mention that the trend not only is affecting the bureaucracy but also the other sectors.
The recruitment of teachers in the universities and other institutions, the selection of students in the post graduate studies, the business opportunities, cultural privileges,the judgments are also affected by this trend.
If the suggestion from the finance minister is accepted, not only bureaucracy, but all other sectors will be absolutely politicized beyond one’s imagination.
In Bangladesh where job crisis is extreme and job security is absent, the temporary service for months or a few years is an absurd idea.
For Bangladesh, the need is an independent, neutral and non -politicized bureaucracy.
