Speakers at a seminar called on the political leaders to practice democracy within their respective organisations to bring change in political culture.
They said development was not only the growth of capital and technology but also development of the whole nation. Being a developing country, our traditional politics has always kept aside people’s participation institutionally. Participatory politics and political transparency could help in the nation’s development process, they added.
