Caught In The Act

Once again, ruling party student wing found its name in the hall of shame. One of its leaders severely slapped director of a coaching center for not complying with his extortion demand. The whole incident was caught on camera. The video went viral in the internet and generated consternation in the press, provoking widespread condemnation.

Degeneration of such a glorious organization hurt party’s veterans and freedom fighters. Over the years it has built an infamous reputation as ruling party’s storm troopers at key education institutions. It tagged its name with abduction, rape, murder,drug selling and infighting on the news reports appeared since the ruling party assumed office. Sometimes in terms of infamy, it surpassed all its rivals.

Despite PM’s disassociation with this old student organization, not a toddler can believe that Chhatra League’s anarchy is going on without any knowledge of top brass of the party.

In a cadre based political party, party leadership exercises some kind of command and control all across the party hierarchy. So how can Chhatra League continue this mayhem while keeping the party bosses in the dark?

There must be many recipients of Chhatra League’s ill gotten wealth all across the party hierarchy. Otherwise, how could such a popular party tolerate these condemnable acts year after year? In the recent past, party leaders repeatedly blamed anti-liberation elements, opportunists and hybrid political activists for the misdeeds. Though Chhatra League fired them from the organization, it desisted from taking stringent measures against the culprits.

Even the party secretary on many occasions said that honest and good people had little role to play in politics as running a party needed a lot of money. When an amphetamine moghul cum member of parliament, also known for slapping government officials, made appearances at anti-corruption commission hearing and left a trail of controversy, the secretary sarcastically said, ” You will not get the nomination in the next election.”patting his back. The two were smiling before the press in Cox’s Bazar when the announcement was made.

I am no foot soldier of any political party. From my own observation I can say these various wings of political parties do a great disservice to respective parties. They more or less play the role of money making agents. For that if they have to indulge in criminal acts, parties usually turn a blind eye to those misdeeds. This is what we are watching right now. In this process,the worst they can do is to destroy the professionalism in an institution.

It seems AL is taking its cues from the BNP. But we know that these branches do not prevent party’s exit from power, nor do they come to rescue the party when the party faces all kinds of tortures from adversary. Then what is the point of maintaining so many political wings.

The only conclusion we can draw is that these bugbears are nothing but accumulators of clandestine wealth. They do not only earn bad name for the party they represent, they also pollute the political culture of the country and making the depoliticization scheme saleable to the greater public.

I exactly do not know how these anarchists and rule breakers will contribute to an organization or an office they later join. As I have told earlier, they just corrode the organizations or offices or contribute to the collapse of authority.

The sour stench of these rulebreakers could be felt in every aspect of our lives. Decrepit conditions of our banks bears this testimony.Division among the professionals and party politics at office furnish the evidence. Strikes of workers for dues further strengthen that conviction.

Since politicians have firm grip on all our major industries, these elements still enjoy positions of influence in all our vital sectors. If market were allowed to operate, they would disappear like morning mist.

From my own stint into journalism, I know first hand what kind of obstacles these troublemakers create while discharging professional duties.

I sometimes find it hard to figure out why one needs to subscribe to a tribal group to excel in professional life.

Striking contrast between tribalism and professionalism can be found in the corporate world. Sales executive of a multi national shoe company does not need to be worried about his future if that executive gives cent percent in his profession. However, a sales executive of a local shoe company has to look for political patronage to secure his future and that of his family.

Tribalism is deeply rooted in our society. It is a mean to make fortune. That is why there are too many “mammoth hunting” around us. So it will be naïve to assume that Roni acted alone.

If wrongdoings of the student wing are to be exorcised from politics, it is not enough to hold the perpetrators accountable. Their mentors, be in civilian attire or in uniforms, also need to be held accountable and the party itself has to be overhauled.

The general secretary, whose rise to current position is controversial as he admitted to the press he had special ties to the family of COAS, also marred the public image of the party on several occasions. He himself publicly slapped several people including one of his party worker. So this culture is pretty much in Awami DNA. Roni as an avid disciple of the general secretary has taken up the habit. Moreover, he tried to integrate into the culture of ” hunters and gatherers”. Without further ado, ruling party needs to disclose identities of Roni’s cohorts and mentors. As it is evident that Roni is following his superiors, so it is the ruling party general secretary who should take the moral responsibility of Roni’s transgression. The sooner he steps down, the better.

Hold The Untouchables Accountable

The period before and after the next election is extremely crucial for a country like Bangladesh. The one year period, 6 months before and after the election, can be called the transition period. Departure of one regime and arrival of a new one make the period unique.

The only comparable event that provides some clue about the nature of this transition period is the twilight or the dawn. The living world is in a stand by mode when the dusk draws in and the day disappears and vice versa.No matter how brief this adaptation time is needed for one to become fully active for the next phase.

During this stand by mode, living world cannot often respond to a dire situation with the alacrity as it does during the normal period.

Similarly, many state organizations tasked with ensuring checks and balances show some lethargy or become hyperactive during this transition period.

This year is a bit exception as we do not know whether there will be any election at the end of this year. Even if there is one , it is still uncertain whether that will be inclusive and fair.

But activity of some organizations is noticeable at this moment. We see ACC is in combative mood. We watched how haphazardly Bangladesh Bank gave in to government wishes to relax regulations for politically blessed private commercial banks. More recently we start to watch that different law enforcing agencies compete each other in extrajudicial killing. Reports are surfacing on online news media and print media that trigger happy people resume their old habit.

This inaction and hyperactivity of some organizations arouse great suspicion among the common men. This absence of action and over enthusiasm mark an aberration from the threshold normal. In the wake of this kind of response, concerned citizens are struck by a question. Is it a genuine response to the situation at hand or to shape the truth?

These people depend on govt for their salary and promotion.Since their recruitment and transfer also depend on govt, it is quite difficult for them to act objectively.

At the same time, over the years we have failed to devise a system to hold them accountable. In a deeply polarized country where corruption is rampant, politicians have not been keen to make them accountable.
Often they become extended arm of the political parties. And time to time they also indulge in criminal acts. Unless the matter is covered by media, the transgressions go unnoticed and the transgressors roam scot free. Virtually they live in impunity.

A lot of strict restrictions have been imposed on media about reporting on wrongdoing of law enforcement personnel. The recent addition is the Digital Security Act,which contains clauses of labeling a journalist “spy” when the journalist fails to comply certain rules. The whole community and concerned citizens across political aisle voiced strong opposition to the Act.

This kind of rules and regulations sent a wrong message to personnel who have natural inclination to violate code of conduct.

In recent years, Bangladesh witnessed awful lot of earth shattering scams. Mysteriously there had been no early warning from the agencies who like to fix everything through the barrel of the gun.
While street urchins and petty muggers received bullets, in a disproportionate response to their crimes, many robber barrons relish the lives of VIPs. New alleys of corruption are explored by them in connivance with the political class. Even the clandestine capital is discreetly laundered abroad right before the noses of our law enforcement agencies. This evokes Sherlock Holmes’s question into the minds of common people: ” Watson, the dog did not bark.”

The recent protest of public service exam reform set another example. Dhaka commuters are quite familiar with law enforcement vehicles ply over from one end to the other end of Dhaka. Even in the key shopping malls one can notice overwhelming number of such vehicles and personnel. Hardly did I see any police/army vehicle on the streets when the quota movement reached its climax. Luckily the protesters were peaceful and the protest continued peacefully except the attack on the house of Dhaka University VC and few incidents of journalist harassment at the university campus.

Experience was indeed harrowing in those protest hours.Dhaka was fallen into the hands of protesters. Roads were blocked. Protests spread across major cities. There were no police or BGB personnel. Later I watched a scroll news that read Police wanted to avoid any untoward situation at the street so they avoided confrontation with the protesters.

I remember how I waited hours for a bus in the afternoon to meet an editor. As I could not find any, I had to abandon the meeting to discuss with him any journalistic opportunity that I dearly need right now.

Fear and disquiet stalked through the streets of Dhaka in those 48 hours.However there was no protester, nor was any Police personnel. Just long queues of buses that stood still. I was wondering what it would look like if an altercation turned violent or a looting started. In such situation, presence of law enforcement personnel is a must to allay worries of people. Their presence does not necessarily mean to lock in clashes with the protesters.

The attack on the house of VC is an enigma that needs to be cracked. How could the attackers know the exact location of CCTV cameras and the hard disk that stored footages? How could they manage to continue the mayhem for more than one long hour?How did they manage to sap the power supply to VC’s house, as reported by the press? These are criminal acts. Why did law enforcement personnel fail to provide any information about it in advance? Till to date , there is no progress in detaining the culprits.

Last couple of years, we live in a country where law and order situation has gradually declined. Yet , there has been no significant security measures to address the issue.

As election approaches, we start to watch surge of extrajudicial killing. There is no gainsaying that law enforcement situation needs to be improved ahead of next election. But it has to be done under a joint command and under the tutelage of an independent commission.

But for that we need to chalk out a draft act that will make the legal ground for its being. It will hold responsible personnel of key institutions in the wake of prejudiced or unlawful acts. At the same time this independent commission, headed by a former chief justice and made up of retired judges, generals, academic, will oversee the actions of the key organizations including the law enforcement agencies during the transition period and lay down do’s and don’ts for them.

In the past, lawlessness paved the path for intervention of undemocratic forces. To thwart that possibility, it behooves the govt to create this independent commission. In the end the democracy, which has been going through a trial and error phase, will be prime beneficiary of this commission and loss of innocent life will be prevented. The commission will also be tasked with forming a joint command drawing resources from numerous forces to resume normalcy in law and order. To a functioning democracy if there has been any commitment left, political parties will not oppose such novel idea.

Need For FDI In SMEs

A decision taken by the government to ease the Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) by 1 % and to oblige the government organizations to park 50% of their funds at private commercial banks still rankle with most of the people.

Many viewed the decision as a reward to the plunderers. They cannot figure it out how can a group of people who brought the financial stability of the whole banking sector to the point of collapse will better use the government fund to recuperate losses and to bring fresh blood in the sector. The reasons for their skepticism are not ungrounded.

First of all, it is a complete denial to the faults of the management boards which are in most of the cases politically biased.

Second, owner families who have strong political connection consolidated their ownership of banks through govt’s new ownership policy.

Third, neither the government officials nor the Central Bank can work independently against these plunderers.

Fourth , in an election year true investors shelve their plans as they do not have any clear picture what will be the outcome of next election or whether there will be any election at all at the end of this year. So market is infested with politically blessed businessmen who are more keen to politically motivated projects.

Provided that there is no silver lining in domestic investment, no lucrative business project is left where they can invest this money.
Part of this money will be ended into the pockets of political thugs and the rest will remain unused.

As long as political parties meddle in the decision making process of the private banks, no change in the current banking practices is visible.
But there is still room for change.Govt can allow foreign nationals in the management board of the banks or allow foreign institutions to buy part of the stakes of troubled banks.

As I have mentioned earlier, foreign nationals (not dual citizens) are insulated from local political influence, so decision taken by them will be highly beneficial for the banks and depositors.

One may argue that allowing foreign nationals at the top of management boards of our banks poses risks to our banking sector. When our own nationals are found laundering money abroad, this kind of argument is a moot point.

Moreover, with their superior management skill and widespread network, these foreign business graduates could open new horizons of opportunities for the ailing domestic banks. This will bring an end to the stagnant situation in the investment.

Recently, govt redoubled its initiatives to mobilize funds towards SME initiatives in a bid to spur job creation activities. Many like me cast doubt on govt initiatives as politically blessed entrepreneurs are dominant in the economy.

The risk that many of these SME initiatives may fail looms large in the present context. So banks and financial institutions are likely to mire in bad debts again.

What can be done? I personally think we should allow FDI in all the sectors irrespective of their size. If a foreign national (including dual citizens) wants to open a grocery here, we should welcome it with open arms. Germans have shown keen interest to invest in our SMEs. We should take every initiative to implement this proposal.

Because superior management skills, innovation,professionalism and better supply chain management will be introduced to SME sector, FDI in SMEs will eventually create quality jobs that will not disappear in the course of political change.

Recently, chief minister of Meghalaya has expressed keen interest to do business with Bangladesh. I think Bangladesh should open its door to North East Indian businessmen even if the proposal is for small initiatives.
These little steps will further cement the ties between people to people and help reducing trust deficits between the countries. In addition, it will make the next door neighbor stakeholder of Bangladesh’s economy.

I think Bangladesh can allot land to Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland and Manipur so that they can set up business facilities like warehouse, trade center, exchange house.

This will boost trade and help North East Indian businessmen to do trade with the rest of the world through Bangladesh. At the same time, Bangladeshi businessmen interested to do business with North East India will be welcomed there.

Closer connectivity and ease of doing business between the North East and Bangladesh will bring quality investment from other parts of the world.

For the moment, deteriorating law and order situation and ruling party’s failure to bring to the book its wayward loyalists make revival of economic activity ahead of the next election untenable.

Unless there is a nation wide drive under a joint command, chances are slim that situation will improve drastically and true businessmen will regain their confidence.

Given this situation, professional bankers, rare at the moment, are reluctant to pour funds in any project.Those likely to see light have high chances to fail. So this Tk100 billion to the debt-ridden banks may fall into wrong hands, worsening further the balance sheets of the troubled banks.

Govt’s plan to create jobs through SMEs steers towards the right direction. However, we are right now living in a country where infringement of gentleman’s agreement has become the norm in the last few years. Retired couple after providing services to the country cannot live a tranquil and hassle free life. Petty staff of a public office/ private firm needs to look for political patronage to secure his job. Students and executives die or get maimed while commuting on the streets. Frauds flee abroad collecting money from depositors.Cost of doing business rises because of unofficial tax on businesses in the form of extortion and unwarranted corruption.

This is not the right environment for courting domestic entrepreneurs. So we need to attract FDI in SMEs to revamp the prevailing business climate and create quality jobs. Only then this kind of incentives to commercial banks will end up in good projects.

Elimination By Death

This week a Dhaka court sentenced killer of RMG trade union activist Aminul Islam to death. Bangladesh Center for Workers’ Solidarity leader was last seen leaving his Savar office with his friend and presumed killer Mustafijur Rahman and one other burkha-clad woman. Mustafij has remained missing since then.

Aminul’s mysterious death was special because it shocked international communities who are critical to workers’ safety in Bangladesh. When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her town hall meeting in Bangladesh pressed for solving Aminul murder mystery, media attention to the incident reached a new height.

Small town workers’ hero Aminul was known to his neighborhood. But he was a lesser known figure at national level. Perhaps that is why country’s top political leaders and workers rights activists surprised at his death and said: “We have not heard of him.”

What is interesting about Aminul’s murder is that very few organizations talked about his disappearance and death. Even his death anniversary is not observed. In a country that is abuzz with thousands of occasions and observation of thousands of trifling days, silence to Aminul’s murder and death anniversary by many human rights organizations is awkward.Anti-US feelings may be the reason.

Had former US Secretary of State not mentioned his name, his murder case would have remained traceless like thousands of those of the disappeared ones.

I contacted both Aminul’s wife and his colleagues at BCWS to know about their reactions to the verdict.

Aminul’s wife, who makes do with her husband’s allowance and her tailoring work, is not content with the official explanation. She has long been arguing that powerful owners irked by Aminul’s activism killed him. She is still haunted by the gruesome images of her husband’s tortured body. His nails were pulled out and feet were smashed. Holes were drilled into his knees. His whole body was hammered.

She also demands reinvestigation and fair trial. Aminul’s colleagues second that.BCWS officials claimed that Mustafij was a mole and received regular payments from agencies.

When I inquired about Mustafij’s association with BCWS, one official told me : ” Mustafij is not one of us . He was Aminul’s coworker and we suspect that he used to work for agencies.”

The official buttressed her claim by adding:” Investigation shows that this guy talked frequently to the law enforcement personnel. He also received money from BEPZA medical board. How could an employee of a private firm receive money from a government organization?

Aminul went missing on April 04 in 2012 and was murdered on the very next day.
We have information that Mustafij was seen on 9 April in Savar. There is something not normal about this murder case.”

BCWS is planning to go to the higher court for justice.
His death also exposed a murky side of Bangladesh politics. It revealed how the government ( better read the agencies) controlled the leadership of political movement (the popular one) in order to feed a modulated narrative to mould people’s views. In the end, this kind of control undermines the political movement and kills it before it reaches the climax.

People involved in RMG trade union or workers’ right movement are seen with great suspicion. They are viewed as people who are incubating conspiracies to destroy country’s biggest forex earning sector.

More than two thirds of the MPs in current parliament are businessmen and a good number of them have made their fortune in RMG business.

No matter how sympathetic the ruling party may be towards this working class, this unbalanced representation of different social classes in the parliament often resulted in prejudiced action against any legitimate movement put up by the blue collars.

Government organizations often become inured to the explanations of owners without putting them to test. For this reason, they use an awful lot of force to put down any protest in industrial zones. Force has never vouchsafed a settlement to a disagreement and it never will.

Aminul’s murder inculcates that people’s support and popularity are not enough to spearhead a movement. Blessings of powerful quarters are needed. And that individual has to be known by the ruling elite.

This classification of “Ashraf” (the privileged) and “Atraf”(the common) prevails in our society and surfaced time to time through the incidents like the abduction and murder of Aminul.

Feudal characteristics of our society gave birth to this division. Though we severed ties with our affluent Muslim brother, we are yet to discard their feudal mentality. Aminul originated from a poor family and he fought for a cause that earned him many enemies in the ruling elite.

When the elites confront commoners like Aminul they use two approaches to bring an end to animosity: absorption and elimination.

Perhaps Aminul’s devotion to his cause made the method of absorption untenable. So he was deliberately eliminated. His death sent a ripple of indignation across the working class and provoked international condemnation. But it also sent a chilling message to those who feel for workers’ rights: “Don’t meddle, Don’t demand.”
