'Democracy must be functional'

Democracy must be made functional so that the country's people can exercise their basic rights, said Gonoforum President Dr Kamal Hossain.He came up with the remarks while virtually speaking at a meeting of the Gonoforum central committee at the National Press Club on Saturday.

Dr Kamal said, "Democracy will have to be made functional in the country. Democracy shouldn't just be on the pages of a book. We should create opportunities for people to enjoy their rights." People will be able to effectively protect their rights if they become aware of the goals of the country's constitutions and their basic and democratic rights, he further said.

Claiming that Gonoforum is working to implement the aspirations of people from the Liberation War and the freedom fighters, he said, "We'll be able to give democracy an institutional shape in our country and translate the goals of our independence into reality if we can make our organization stronger."

The Gonoforum president asked its central leaders to organise the party in every district. "Increase the number of young men and women in the party and hold rallies all over the country in favor of the party, and present the principles and ideals of Gonoforum before people."He also suggested Gonoforum leaders launch a campaign to make people aware of democracy and their rights.
