Sheikh Hasina wins again in Bangladesh, Opposition seeks fresh vote
The ruling coalition is now one of the strongest governments in South Asia bagging more than 80 percent of votesAuthor : Sunaina
Sheikh Hasina created history, today, by winning a consecutive fourth time in the Bangladesh.
This feat has never been achieved in the history of Bangladesh politics. The ruling coalition is now one of the strongest governments in South Asia bagging more than 80 percent of votes.
The ruling coalition went into the election campaign on the shoulders of Hasina's work in "Development" hoping the voters to favour the Awami League. Awami League has constantly sought votes in favour of the “liberation war spirit”, and against the forces of “communalism and fundamentalism”.
The opposition party, Jatiya Oikya Front (National United Front) was hoping for the anti-incumbency catching up Hasina and make way for Zia to get released from prison.
Hasina's win is comfortable for India as both the countries have made considerable amount of gains in the bilateral ties over the last decade. India relationship with the BNP-Jamaat alliance government during 2001-06 was not positive, owing to attacks on Hindus and anti-India activities in the country.
