The Charade makes it abundantly clear that, in order to cling to power, the Awami League government depends more on India’s backing than on the mandate of the people of Bangladesh. Since it came to power in early 2009, the regime has provided ample reasons for India to throw its weight around to ensure the perpetuation of Awami rule in Bangladesh. This seemed to have removed any election anxiety from the mind of the Awami League secretary general who is quoted by Riaz as saying prior to the 2024 election: ‘As Delhi is there, so are we. There is nothing to worry about’ (p. 44).
