DHAKA, May 28 (Xinhua) -- Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has disclosed that a white man had offered her a smooth reelection in the Jan. 7 polls if she allowed a foreign country to establish an air base in Bangladesh.

"If an election took place, there would be no problem for me to be sworn into power if I had allowed a country to set up an airbase inside our country," she said at a meeting of the Awami League-led 14-party alliance in Dhaka recently, adding that "the offer came from a white man."

"We won our Liberation War. I do not want to gain power by renting or handing over certain parts of my country to anyone," the prime minister stressed.

She said, "At that time, I accepted the challenge. However, the conspiracy is still ongoing. There is a plan to make a Christian state here like East Timor (Timor-Leste) with some parts of Bangladesh's Chattogram and Myanmar."
