‘Democracy ruined by mismanagement’
Gana Sanghati Andolan yesterday said that democracy in Bangladesh has been ruined by mismanagement at their central organising council at the National Press Club. At the inauguration programme, leaders of the organisation said that the country is no where close to being a democracy, rather it more of an autocracy. This autocratic governance has given rise to the mismanagement of all social and state institutions that has ruined their ability to function, they alleged. Central Leader of Gana Sanghati Andolan, Abdus Salam said that mass violence is ruining the education sector in the country in way that has never been seen in the past. He also alleged that the agriculture industry has been destroyed by mismanagement. There is no other alternative way other than a democratic movement to save the country from this situation, he also said. Anu Mohammad said that people have been repeatedly raising their voice against the Rampal power plant to save the Sundarbans but the government has been paying no heed to them at all. Warning the government, he said the people will not allow the government to establish Rampal power plant in Sundarbans area. Referring to the president’s speech, Zuanyed Saki said that Gana Sanghati Andolan wants to establish a democratic country that respects national sovereignty. He said: “The unelected government wants to serve Indian, Chinese and American interests by avoiding the national interest.” Different district and thana level leaders took part in the programme. The party approved the party constitution, party symbol, proclamation and also elect its central committee yesterday. Gana Sanghati Andolan Convenor, Zunayed Saki presided over the inauguration programme. In attendance were Dhaka University Professor, Serajul Islam Choudhury, Member Secretary of the National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas and Mineral Resources, Power and Ports Anu Mohammad and other central leaders of the party.
