Leaders of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) have called upon Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal to shift imprisoned BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to United Hospital in Dhaka for medical treatment. It is Khaleda Zia’s most preferred hospital, BNP leaders have stated.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir made this request to Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday at the Secretariat. Later on Mirza Fakhrul Islam spoke to reporters.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam said, “We have requested the Home Minister to move Begum Khaleda Zia to a specialized hospital as soon as possible. United Hospital is preferred most by Begum Khaleda Zia. So, we have urged Home Minister to enable Khaleda Zia to get admitted in this particular hospital for further treatment.”
Mirza Fakhrul Islam also said, “Mr. Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that he would talk to Home Secretary, Inspector General of Prisons and other concerned officials about it. He said he would speak to the specialist doctors as well who are currently taking care of Khaleda Zia.”
Mirza Fakhrul Islam held this meeting with Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday at the Secretariat from 3 pm to 3: 50 pm. At one point IG Prisons Brigadier General Syed Iftekhar Uddin also joined the meeting.
