In Bangladesh, the army is called when any situation is out of control. They are the last shot in the government's armory and are usually effective to bury down a mess.

Now look what they are doing. They are dispensing water to the protesters who are deprived of water for basic needs. Shouldn't that be the WASA authorities doing this?

The main cause of the crisis is the power crisis. It was long expected but the authorities failed to do anything to prevent it as their corruption plot messed up. Now will the army be used to tackle the electricity protests?

I wonder how long the authorities will not be held accountable for their failures and the army will be called to save their faces. This is a dangerous game as some day any army general may plot a coup to avoid being a pawn in the hand of some incompetents.
