Hi Zahid Bhai

Once again thanks alot for your informative blog post. For students like me who are currently outside of Bangladesh and is looking to pursue a career in the development space, your blogs are definitely a great source of information and also a timely reminder as to what we can still look to improve within the political economy of Bangladesh.

On the post itself, I would additionally point out that there is a growing number of businessmen in the political process in Bangladesh. While it is not necessarily a bad thing, but this trend has not yielded any benefit to us. The lack of political experience not only leads to ineffective parliamentary systems, but in my opinion also clouds their decision making skills especially since many of these MPs are also part of the executive branch of the government. And as you correctly pointed in your conclusion this does lead to a situation where business groups fails to correct the political failures.
