    According to reports, seeking to mend fences with India, Opposition Leader and chairperson of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), on October 29 assured India’s Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh that the anti-terror crackdown would continue even if her Party came to power. The BNP leader held a 30-minute-long meeting with the Prime Minister and expressed her commitment to continue with the anti-terror cooperation with India. Perhaps to convince New Delhi, Begum Zia conveyed that Bangladesh’s soil would not be allowed to be used by forces inimical to India’s interest. Both leaders agreed to continue counter-terror cooperation between the two countries. 1
