Positive change is needed to build a developed state
Independent Bangladesh was born with a dream. Bangladesh of that dream will be a state with bright potential in history, tradition and culture. In the fifty-nine years of independence, both the successes and failures of this country have been discussed. Politics is inextricably linked with the state.
It is involved in all matters of the state, big and small. But it is a matter of regret that most of the youth are now averse to politics. Young people are a big part of the total population of the country. Those who think new about the country, society, economy, politics, want to build a happy, prosperous and non-discriminatory society. Where an honest and hassle-free state system will be built instead of corruption and subculture.
Only the young generation can expand the work with the power of modern thinking, thinking, building a Bangladesh free from unemployment and orthodoxy. And so there is a need for political awareness among the younger generation. As a developing country, Bangladesh is going through a fast-paced time. To take that time forward, the direct participation of all people in all fields is very important.
The pace of development of the state has slowed down as the interests of individuals and groups have grown away from the foundation on which the rise of independent Bangladesh took place, the practice of culture to which the war of liberation took place. Young people are creative, patriotic. It was these young people who set up the Ganajagaran Mancha to demand the trial of war criminals.
At present, there are bipartisan circles in national politics, sometimes due to political shortsightedness, sometimes voterless elections, sometimes military rulers seize power through back door, and the overall development of the country has come to a standstill due to these political instability. Young people have a big contribution.
The direct a political depravity of the youth has hampered the practice of participatory democracy and is one of the reasons why undemocratic groups have been able to seize state power. One side says there is no political crisis in the country, the other side says Bangladesh is going through a political crisis. No one ever thinks about what the common people between the two think.
There is no question about the speed with which the turn of the veterans can bring development in the field of politics. Everyone has seen their activities in the past years. So if we can put that same responsibility on the shoulders of the youth, we should create an opportunity to see how they can use the power of the youth to further develop the state and uplift the democratic system.
The word politics has become a lucrative business name for many nowadays. But the dream with which Bangabandhu called for independence was not supposed to happen anywhere. Bangladesh was born by breaking the chain of Pakistan from the British rule for human rights, minimum needs, social justice, human dignity. But even there, people’s reliance on food, shelter, health and education is on the rise, while people’s money continues to flow in unimaginable development expenditures and corruption, banks, share scandals in various ways.
To continue what the youth of this country have done in the historical tradition as partners of the younger generation; To prevent this disease, the deviation from the dream Bangladesh, in thoughts, at work, at home, in leisure, on the streets; Otherwise we may have to bear the burden of a rotting country and society.
When you go to TSC or fine arts, you can see pictures or tattoos of other revolutionary leaders including Che Guevara, Fidel Castro in bags, caps and notebooks of the younger generation. However, there is no direct interest in politics among those young people. As a result, a large part of student politics is being spread by some selfish people.
