Looking Back



In the past only once had the leaders of the two dominant political parties and rivals Khaleda Zia and Shiekh Hasina cooperated. The heads of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and Awami League (AL) have not met or even spoken to each other for more than a decade since 1990 when they had worked unitedly to oust the military autocrat H.M. Ershad. Many believe that for the sake of the country’s future it is high time that they forsake their differences in order to bring in a democracy that they had failed to establish after the ’90s mass upheaval.
