Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina accused opposition leader Khaleda Zia Monday of trying to create anarchy after her arch rival called for nationwide protests in an effort to topple the government.
"I am urging the BNP leader to stop these bomb and grenade attacks, these acts of sabotage, and killings, of arson and damage to property," Hasina said in a speech to the nation, exactly a year after she was re-elected in polls boycotted by Zia's Bangladesh Nationalist Party.
Hasina said she would not tolerate efforts to create "anarchy and instability" in the volatile country.
