Not only corrupt - they are also mostly uneducated goondas.So, it is always the group of leaders of a country that matters. Do you expect BD to produce such a group of leadership? We are the most corrupt people.
This is the meritocracy we have. If the top person (i.e.) Hasina depends on goondas to hold on to power, then how can we qualitatively compete with other nations?
Look at four years of trump and where it took the US. Thugs were so close to running the country. Rule of law started to erode.
I am sorry - but China actually has better leadership, at least their top bureaucracy is a meritocracy, which is well proven.
One can argue all one wants, but look at where India is going, with thugs running the country in successive administrations. The finance minister they have alone (Nirmala Sitaraman) is a case study in abject failure of competence. Garbage in, garbage out.
Now think ten times worse. That is what we have as far as leadership.
Whatever progress is happening in Bangladesh, is happening in spite of the govt., not because of it.
Only a handful of people do their jobs. Planning Minister MA Mannan and Energy Minister Nasrul Hamid come to mind. Those two ministries are crucial. Under Nasrul Hamid - Power output of Bangladesh increased from 10289 MW to 21419 MW. He is a charismatic leader AFAIK.
This is limited knowledge of course, I could be wrong.
Both come from educated families and not from uneducated goonda cadre background.
