by the international agencies that forced the ctg into a corner with the general election date. Imperial democratic conditionality.
by the parties hungry for power that rejected the idea of having the upazilas before the 'big one'. Heroin addiction.
by the have a go activists who actually dont give a stuff about decentralisation and simply focus on the national picture from their westoxified ghettos. Glue sniffers.
by the voters who like all good bangladeshis dont credit these matters with the power and seriousness they represent. aar ki bolbo?
and by the newly empowered MPs flexing their brawn on the local adminsitration. shuorer sau.
its just really really sad.
