Khaleda Zia, the Prime Minister of Bangladesh has dismissed any sign of anxiety in the government or the members of public following the opposition's deadline for bringing down the government through constitutional means. She was speaking during a lunch which she hosted for editors of newspapers and electronic media.
Responding to a question on the April 30 deadline, she said, "Nothing will happen on the day. We will continue to exist and so will the opposition. We believe in multi-party democracy, which ensures the existence of all political parties regardless of differences."
She said Sunday that her administration is not anxious about Awami League's April 30 deadline for the government's fall.
During the two-hour function, the prime minister replied to a volley of questions from the editors on a host of issues including law and order, price hike of essentials, Chittagong arms haul and agricultural development.
