Is it a wave of hope for creating a new prestigious Nation

YES !! This is a wave of hope for creating a new prestigious Nation.
After a long time from the democracy born in Bangladesh this is the first time we are noticing the political courtesy in both the Awami-legue and BNP. Yesterday BNP Leader Begum Khaleda assured the constructive participation as the opposition leader.
BNP parliamentary party (BNPPP) also agreed the to accept the deputy speker post which is already offered by the ruling party Awami-Legue with comment "Now we are waiting to see if the government will create a conducive environment for us in the parliament."

On contrary Awami-legue leader Sheak Hasina(prime Minister) also shown and acting the proprer attitude till now which indicate to present a new political culture in Bangladesh

This practice is new, we are aware that many mistake may come to do so as Bangladeshi political culture is habituated with a blaming and non-cooperative attitude- but the new wave will win to bring out a real productive nation- is the hope of general people
