BNP standing committee has demanded the government take prompt steps to send their party chairperson Khaleda Zia abroad for advanced treatment considering her critical health condition.
“Though our leader (Khaleda) has recovered from coronavirus, she has been suffering from some post-Covid complications, and she’s not free from risk in any way. She has heart problems, and her kidney and liver complications are very critical,” said BNP secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Speaking at a press conference, he also said the medical board formed for Khaleda’s treatment thinks she needs treatment for liver and other complications at any advanced centre abroad as there is little scope to receive such treatment in Bangladesh.
“Our standing committee meeting has called for intensifying steps for sending Khaleda aboard for ensuring her treatment at a much better advanced centre. Our meeting also urged the government to (completely) free her,” Fakhrul said.
The BNP standing committee members had a virtual meeting on Saturday last where they discussed Khaleda’s overall health condition.
