A a a a it a it to so is amp amp re Ltd Cut Ltd -. / i by Leon Daniel Dacca Bangladesh up a sheikh Mujibur Rahman the prime minister of Bangladesh is like the proud father of a baby approaching its second birthday. The infant is kicking and Yelling but still unable to walk unassisted. The sheikhs severest critics say his baby May die but that is unlikely. Mujib and his supporters claim the baby is As healthy As could be expected which also has been challenged. What appears to be indisputable is that the charismatic sheikh i separately described As shrewd naive egocentric and Down to Earth is the father of this new nation which emerged 23 months ago in a War in which India detached pakistanis Eastern Wing. No other political Leader Here really matters whether he is for Mujib or against him. For better or worse depending on the Point of View the sheikh alone runs Bangladesh. Mujib governs the country from Gana Bhavan Peoples House which is aptly named. People constantly Jam his outer office waiting patiently to see him on problems great and Small. His critics say he sees too Many people and neglects the hard decisions that could get the country moving. But an official close to him insists the constant Contact with the people is necessary explaining that a the warmth of the masses sustains and it appears that despite rampant inflation massive unemployment and a widespread breakdown of Law and order the sheikh is justified in his frequent boast that a my people love in an interview at Gana Bhavan Mujib noted his administrations achievements in occasionally flawed but forceful English. He cited resettling to million refugees who fled to India and returned after the War. Improving the Law and order situation rebuilding roads Ard Bridges destroyed or damage in the fighting and giving the nation a constitutional democracy.

Not All killed. On Way to India some died. On Way Back some the sheikh apparently no longer insists that the pakistani army killed 3 million bengalis a figure that has been disputed widely since the sheikh suggest cd it. Contention that a United Naf a my own Lions Survey team had com eminent pared the destruction Here to Germany after world War ii. Of All his achievements Mujib is perhaps proudest of but his Point was lodged bringing what he considers securely and he proceeded to constitutional government and Nail it Down fast with the free elections to Bangladesh.
