BNP lying over Khaleda’s health: Quader


Dhaka, Mar 31: Ruling Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday alleged that the BNP leaders are resorting to falsehood regarding the health condition of BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia.“After visiting Khaleda (in jail) recently, Dhaka civil surgeon has said that her health condition is the same as it was when she landed in prison. A medical board will be formed and she would be sent abroad if the board suggests,” he told reporters after visiting the development work of Baipal-Abdullhapur highway at Zirabo in Ashulia on Saturday.

Quader said the government will do everything for the proper treatment of Khaleza Zia after taking doctors’ advice.

“The BNP is making lie about the health of party chairperson Khaleda Zia,” he added.

Khaleda Zia’s health condition has not deteriorated since she landed in jail in Zia Charitable Trust corruption case.

During the visit, Quader assured that the work on Dhaka-Tangail highway will be completed before Eid-ul-Fitr this year.

Local lawmaker Dr Enamur Rahman, Jubo League Organizing Secretary Faruque Hasan and AL Savar upazila Organizing Secretary Dewan Mehedi Hasan Manju, among others, were present on the occasion.
