Two foreign prestigious dailies in their reports said that Bangladesh is on the right track, advancing amid challenges arisen from the fallout of Covid-19 pandemic and Russia-Ukraine war.

The Economic Times published a story headlined “Bangladesh keeps economy stable despite geo-economic crisis” which mentions that the country's foreign exchange reserves are in a much stronger position than those in other South Asian countries.

The main pillars of the Bangladesh economy are garments and foreign exchange remitted by Bangladeshi workers abroad. These two sectors are playing a key role in running the wheel of economy smoothly. There is absolutely no possibility of a Sri Lanka-like situation in Bangladesh in the near future as the economies of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are vastly different, the Bangkok Post in its report says.  


Bangladesh Nationalist Party should talk 

about Bangladesh’s development instead

 of spreading propaganda and falsehood


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina led Bangladesh government has already adopted an austerity policy to deal with the situation and it is determined to keep the economy stable at any cost, the story mentions. 

The World Bank and International Monetary Fund are also frequently lauding the country for successfully implementing its policies to tackle the current crisis. Bangladesh has its challenges but authorities have already responded to keep the economy on an even keel. At least 25 nations are vulnerable to debt risk. However, Bangladesh is not on the list.

As the election is approaching, Bangabandhu’s killers and plotters are out to grab state power using the backdoor. Some rightists, leftists and extreme leftists now have joined with them. A section of “ultra-learned” men who always look to foreigners, have also started doing their jobs like in the past as if they (foreigners) will install them to the state power.

They had destroyed the country making it depended on others, creating militancy and terrorism, turning it into champion of corruption for five times during their rule. Some political parties especially Bangladesh Nationalist Party should talk about Bangladesh’s development instead of spreading propaganda and falsehood. So, quoting Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States, we also want to tell these vested elements that “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”
