People's demand of a fair election must be fulfilled

The country is passing through a turmoil. The unjust attitude of the government is responsible for this. Protests are going on all over the country by people from all walks of life, not only by the political parties, but the ruling party seems to become deaf and blind to this fact.
Common people have become united; they want back their voting right of which they were deprived in the last two terms. They want to cast votes with ballot papers not with EVM, so the ruling party must refrain from using EVM.
The election must be held under a neutral government otherwise people will not allow it to go ahead, they are the owner of this country so everything must be done in their terms, we hope the ruling party will realise it and act accordingly.

Prioritise technical 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.

Abuse of Social Media
Currently the number of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter users is increasing at an alarming rate. Whatever wish, whoever writes his opinion in an instant whether it has an anti-religious, anti-humanitarian, or negative impact on the social context is out of the question. The ghost of cheap popularity has haunted most of the users. However, in this case, the young society is ahead. They don't stop commenting like that, they are also trying to gain popularity with various video contents. There is nothing like learning or positive impact on society in these promoted videos, but they are obsessed with various obscenities. The video is being released at the moment by holding various body postures through communication. These poor young people are walking towards darkness day by day.
So, family should explain to the child from the beginning about the positive and negative aspects of using social media. The main responsibility of the child is to restrain his own family in these matters.
