Expansion of the cabinet

The prime minister has decided to expand her cabinet when she has only fifteen months in hand to show something extraordinary. This decision comes when the present government is under pressure for some consecutive financial scandals. More surprisingly two of the new proposed members of the new cabinet Tofaiel Ahmed and Rashed Khan Menon rejected the proposal.

Political analysts are explaining it in different ways. Many of them are saying those two experienced leaders were reluctant to take the responsibilities of the financial scandals. Later two other names were included hurriedly before the oath.

Now the size of the Awami League-Jatya Party exceeds past BNP-Jamaat government. The past government was heavily criticized for its site of the cabinet. At that time many experts argued that Bangladesh is a poor country and it can’t afford to such a big cabinet.
