Is it receiving enough attention?
Much needed attention has been on the recent regrettable vandalism and tragedy in Ramu, Cox’s Bazaar. Other than that the Destiny and Hall Mark group scandals are frequently getting the top spot on the newspapers and all the other form of mass media. Although the Thursday tragedy is being reported and covered but not in the volume as anyone would have preferred!
