    Yes he took the loan but how does its prove that he is a defaulter?

    Dear Rashed: No one is saying he was a defaulter. The problem is he denied taking it in the first place. According to his version, he could take 35 lakh under trust bank regulation and he did take only that much. But you can see, he definitely took 99 lakhs! Read the previous couple of posts in E-Bangladesh, it will help you to understand the issue.

    We are asking questions, not giving any verdict.

    After MUA’s “Bankgate” revelation and this new phenomenon — — show how power corrupts. This is my objection about a long term unelected government like present one. All their objectives sound good, but none of them have proven their own honesty at power. Power corrupts people and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It is true for everyone. Unfortunately present government has more power than any of the two Netris had. Can anyone find any corruption charge against any of the leaders when they were not in position of power? We all are “shujoger ovabe choritroban.” When you get power, your test of character starts there.

    We can all remember how Ershad started, he also started with eradication of corruption and “sontrash.” He also put politicians in jail for corruption. We all know the rest. Corruption is the most popular justification for military all over the world to take power from civilian leadership. But please don’t misunderstand me that I am trying to defend any corruption by politicians. What I am trying to say is: what made our civilian leadership corrupt (absolute power), is more obvious in present government. None of them are tested leaders or proven anything that shows they are immune to the vice of power.

    Now we are in a situation where we feel intimidated to ask any question! The silence or one-sided report of all news outlet about the controversy of Mr. MUA proves it so vividly.

    I prefer the one where I can vote them out if I don’t like them, than the one I am afraid to discuss their activities even in private.

    Since “amra sobai chor amader ei chorer rajatye,” I am sure we all agree that it is preferable to have a thief-king we can kick out, after calling all sorts of names in public, than one who stifles our voice and threatens us with all kinds of emergency torture. I sent a few letters to editors of Dhaka dailies, none was printed, for all newspapers are obviously being censored. So it is obvious that the next elections will be rigged so as to bring to power persons who will give full pardon to all the corrupt people now in power.

    Sudhir Mitra:

    You are absolutely correct I feel… in fact, I think, anyone who has been the way this CTG has been, with its connections with the army, DGFI, selective political purging and all, they should frantically be looking for a decent and acceptable exit plan, if not a drastic and ugly one. The fact is, sooner or later, they will have to bow out, but before they do that, they will have to make sure they gain the confidence of at least 200 seats in the whatever kind of elections they let the people of Bangladesh participate in.
