The anti-Awami League and pro-islamist political parties of Bangladesh seems to be vocal at India bashing whenever they find a chance. The unilateral decisions taken by India without considering its neighbor and the subsequent miscommunications cannot be a better basis for the same feat. I have given my 2 cents about it here. The general intention of the malicious remarks are to implicate Awami League with India, so that the people take it for granted that Awami League is no good as a party, who will sell Bangladesh to India, whenever they will be in power.

Another such lame effort was taken up recently by the state news agency Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha. According to one of its report, AL leader Sheikh Hasina's son Sajib Wajed Joy recently had a meeting with Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, Defence minister of India in New Delhi. Joy, who lives in the US protested that he has not been in India in last 10 years and the Indian government also denied the same. After Awami League had threatened to sue the agency, it had taken note of it and investigating. Like all the pending investigations this will also die down without resolving anything.

My question is when the political parties of Bangladesh will show maturity and stop talking these stupid gibberishes using state propaganda machines? These are not at all puting up a good image for Bangladesh. Even there are some sophistication in the slum quarrels.
