Nightmare in Bangladesh

People are again rioting for electricity in Bangladesh, this time in the capital, Dhaka. The power Minister resigns indicating another failure of the BNP government.

This letter to the editor of the Daily Star depicts the misery the people are put through. The government's full efforts are to tackle their political opposition but they are creating another opposition, the common people.

Weak political leadership has led to this crisis. The bad news:- the World Bank in July estimated that Bangladesh needed 10 billion dollars of investment over the next 10 years to fix its average daily power shortfalls.
