We are learning more about our armed forces, who remain busy in security purpose and emergencies. In Bangladesh, we have provision to deploy armed forces personnel for emergencies such as natural disasters. Apart from that, the Prime Minister and President can call upon them to take part in national discourses.
As we have a disciplined armed force we can think over some national activities fitted for them to man. You know, some troops had already been welcomed by African People for health care. We have read in Newspapers that they have cured many African people with prime success. As Art 15 of constitution is telling us to see about People we can easily deploy them in food security, shelter project for distressed, short training based educational need like medical-care and engineering task, satelite clinic, port regulation for controlling garment exports.
Glancing at the veterans in Iraq, we have seen that the troops are taking care of managerial & administrative duties in Iraq. Also, they are busy in rehabilitation work. Our people can take short engineering course in armed forces colleges. Even if we look into administrative training GoB official may take training from the Bangladesh troops.
For managing all, we need policy work only. We have already furnished laws to deploy them in higher administration.
