The Bangladesh, India and Nepal (BBIN) motor vehicle agreement issue is now taking a new turn, with apprehensions arising from a few people and political observers that BBIN is going on the political ring road, where interest groups can be used by political parties, which is very unhealthy and dangerous for a young democracy.
This comes in the wake of a submission made by members of the Coordinator of Truckers Association Committee of Bhutan (CTACB) to the Opposition seeking their help, saying that BBIN will do more harm than help for them. In response, the Opposition has said that the issue will be tabled in the next session of the parliament.
