Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina responds to questions from MPs during Prime Minister's Q&A session at the parliament on Wednesday, November 22, 2017PID

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said working as the head of the government meant she got only a few hours of rest at night

Working for the people of the country with utmost sincerity means there is hardly any time for sleep, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said on Wednesday.

“Sometimes, I don’t get more than 3-3.5 hours of sleep at night due to my workload,” the premier said responding to a supplementary question at parliament. “I work whenever work comes to me, and I do it out of a sense of responsibility.”

The leader of the House also said she did not want any recognition and credit for her work when Jatiya Party lawmaker Fakhrul Imam mentioned her being recognized as the third most honest world leader by Peoples and Politics, a global politics research firm, reported UNB.

“It is not about getting recognition… changing the fate of the people of Bangladesh is a big achievement for me.”

She further said she never thought about how much wealth and money she had. “I never think about what I have earned and who have recognized me for my work. I always consider how much work I have done for the welfare of my people.

“I have risked my life so Bangladesh prospers as an independent country and moves forward on the world stage with its head held high,” she was quoted by BSS as saying.

Thanking the organization which published the list, the prime minister said it had enhanced the dignity of the country.
