Chief Adviser of the Caretaker government Dr Fakhruddin Ahmed has reiterated that the state of emergency will be eased gradually, but political parties have certain responsibilities in this regard and they need to establish accountability through reforms.
While speaking to a group of Bangladeshi journalists covering the annual meeting of World Economic Forum (WEF) 2008 in Davos of Switzerland Fakhruddin Ahmed said the government will not impose any reforms on parties. He said the day would come when the parties within and outside the government would take decision for consensus on national issues for steering the nation towards sustainable democracy and development.
Admitting that political activities have slowed down, Fakhruddin also reiterated his government's plan to lift the restriction on indoor politics outside Dhaka. Replying to a question how Bangladesh was benefited from the WEF meeting, the CA said he has been able to project Bangladesh's stories of successes as well as concern to the world political, economic and social leaders during his formal and informal interactions during the meeting.
