Bangladesh’s Political Temperature Rises

NEW DELHI: As Bangladesh approaches election season in 2024, political tensions are escalating as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has dismissed the opposition BNP’s call for a neutral caretaker government to take over, citing a lack of constitutional backing.
The USA is advocating for participatory elections, with 14 Congressmen demanding for free and fair elections in Bangladesh under UN mediation and neutral parties. Meanwhile, India is maintaining a non-interventionist position, emphasizing Bangladesh’s right to decide for itself. However, India’s preference for the incumbent Awami League government led by Sheikh Hasina remains an open secret.
