Politicians will come to their senses

The Japanese Ambassador to Bangladesh said on November 14, 2022 that "Never heard of stuffing ballot boxes on night before polls in any other country."
What a shame for those who are ruling the country. In the last two elections people were deprived of their voting rights, though the ruling party is saying that the elections were free and fair.
I never thought that one day we will have to face this situation in this country which created history by giving blood for mother tongue and February 21 is observed as Mother Language Day all over the world. And only in nine months the valiant sons of this soil made the country independent.
We hope the politicians will come to their senses and give back the country its lost glory.

Plastic pollution in Bangladesh

Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues, as rapidly increasing production of disposable plastic products overwhelms the world's ability to deal with them. Plastic pollution is most visible in developing Asian and African nations and Bangladesh is no different from them.
According to the World Bank, in December 2021, Bangladesh was one of the top countries in the world in terms of plastic pollution. The annual per capita plastic use in Dhaka alone is 22.25kg. Other big cities like Chattogram and Khulna are also big contributors to this pollution. We must be aware of that.
