Abed Khan, a prominent journalist from Bangladesh and Editor of the Daily Shamokal said that although this caretaker government started well , it now seems that they messing things up. A clear lack of co-ordination is the cause behind contradictory decisions by the government .
In an exclusive interview with VOA Bangla Service Abed khan says that political reforms both within the country and within the parties do not necessitate banishing Sheikh Hasina or Khaleda Zia . He said that reforms are necessary but first the leaders have to get imbibed with the idea of reforms.
Abed mentioned the case of Pakistan where such exclusions have not worked particularly because the way Islamic fundamentalists are now challenging Musharraf and he is now trying to negotiate with Benazir Bhutto, the exiled political leader of Pakistan .
Abed Khan said that as the story unfolds to the extent that Khaleda is probably going to stay in Bangladesh and Hasina is barred from entering Bangladesh, it is all going against Awami League. He adds , although the interim government is not a partisan one there could be a section of people who might seem to be biased for or against some people.
Abed khan also said that the drive against corruption although looks holistic some sections of people are still being spared . He expects that eventually this interim government, as it promised, will take the train of democracy back to its track instead of trying to pilot it.
