In a democratic form of the government it’s very important to make good relation amongst the three branches like the judiciary, the legislative and the executive. The combination of these three can operate any democratic state in a better way which failure may result a chaos in the total governance mechanism.
The legislative will make law, the executive will exercise/administer the law and the judiciary will act as an umpire/ solicitor in this regard as and when needed. In this case we can find the US system where the ‘check and balance’ theory is implementing in a fantastic and functional way keeping harmony in all spheres of the state mechanism.
Being a student of the Political Science as well as Law, what I want to emphasise is to build a good bond especially between the judiciary and the legislative. Of course for the sake of the justice in the society the supremacy of the judiciary is needed even in order to keep the check and balance by which the executive can’t cross their limit or the legislative can’t pass any undemocratic rule or provision in the parliament.
Finally, I would like to highlight the recruitment process of all these three wings of the state where 100% merit based appointment is crucially needed or else the chaos will never be withdrawn from our society since ‘a rat can’t control a cat’. I want to finish my article giving an example by which you all can see the present horrible recruitment picture in our country.
“A total of 3295 (20.11%) of candidates appearing at the 18th BCS examination (held in 1996-97) got zero in English, even though some of them qualified for BCS posts”.

I want to show a live comparative example here to clear my claim in this connection: I’m Md Zahidul Islam (registration number 83976) appeared at the 18th BCS examination in English medium and passed the written examination successfully and appeared at the viva-voce where I also did well. But unfortunately I was not in the final list of the qualified candidates due to the unfair means of the concerned authorities.
And there is no doubt in it at all. This is a clear violation of the human rights too, and therefore, I would request the Prime Minister as well as the President to remove the irregularity and corruption forever and to instruct the concerned authority/ministry to investigate the matter and take necessary action and find out the candidates who got appointment by dint of the unfair means at the 18th BCS examination with a view to ensure that they were recruited on the basis of merit and the quota system even were maintained in a proper way particularly in case of own district ‘Faridpur’ and take necessary measures for the deserving candidates immediately.
