Asian Highway useless for Bangladesh in present form

I just read a shocking article on Asian Highway. Dr. Abul Hashem explains how the current proposal of Asian Highway is not useful to us. You don't have to be an expert on this to understand his point. According to the current proposal, AH-1 and AH-2 will have their both endpoints in Bangladesh-India border. It will go through several land ports in Bangladesh-India border but not anywhere near our two seaports. They will not connect us with Myanmar. The picture should be clear to any sane person now. It is essentially the transit corridor India is demanding from us for a long time. I am surprised to see that the current popular government is going to sign in to this project. They better have solid reason to do this otherwise people will call them sycophant of the Indians. I am sure the cunning Indians are running the show here. All concious citizens of our country should wake up and resist this will all our might. Otherwise they will slap Tipaimukh Dam on our face and take this transit corridor in disguise.
