No politics of conflict, please

The two main and important political parties in Bangladesh are Awami League and BNP. Awami League was the political party that led the independence war of Bangladesh against West Pakistan in 1971.  Again, the role and contribution of BNP in the history of Bangladesh should not be forgotten. Both parties are important in Bangladeshi politics.
But the sad thing is that even after 51 years of independence two parties are seen facing each other for the right of people to vote or to establish democracy. They are constantly warning each other and moving towards a street confrontation. It will never be good for the country and its people. Already, the country's economy is in a fragile state due to various reasons including the Corona pandemic and the war between Ukraine and Russia.
In a country where there is no political stability or political conflict occurs, the country's economic prosperity, social condition and various developmental activities are destroyed. One thing the political parties should remember is that conflict can never lead to peace. Rather, it only causes loss of life and loss of country's resources which is never desirable.
Therefore, thinking of the country and the people, the current ruling party Awami League should play a role in ensuring the rights of the people by coming to a peaceful settlement through discussions with various parties, especially with BNP.
The present stability of the country sjould be maintained and the country cannot go towards conflict. The architect of the independent sovereign Bangladesh Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman fought against the West Pakistan for the rights of the people of the country and to establish the democracy. Therefore, it is our hope that Awami League will again play a role in maintaining harmony among the people. Finally, our motto is 'Love and harmony should prevail in our dear motherland.

Put emphasis on
tech education

Bangladesh has not yet relieved from the scourge of unemployment. Although various programs have been taken at different times to alleviate unemployment, they are not being implemented properly due to lack of resources and skills. If the young generation becomes skilled in technical know-how, then we will be able to transform this large population into human resources.
In order to eliminate unemployment and continue development initiatives in the future, the government should put more emphasis on technology.
