Bangladesh Finance minister AMA Muhith told reporters that in the aftermath of the BDR rebellion, government and businesses have suffered.
He said this will have a negative impact on the economy. He said the government will face budgetary pressure because of the amount of arms and ammunition that was wasted and the pensions and financial benefits that will be paid to the families of the deceased.
Finance Minister Muhith also said that however, he expects the nation will recover within a short period.
