Dhaka, Mar 5 (UNB) – BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday said Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan assured them of taking all necessary steps for ensuring proper treatment to their ailing chairperson Khaleda Zia.
He came up with the remark after a meeting between a high-profile BNP delegation and the minister at the Secretariat.
“We’ve come to the minister to talk about our leader Khaleda Zia’s illness and her proper treatment. The minister listened to us very attentively,” the BNP leader said.
Fakhrul further said, “He (Home Minister) told us that he’ll take whatever steps are needed for ensuring proper treatment to our leader.”
He expressed the hope that Asaduzzaman will live up to his commitment by taking the highest measure for the best treatment of Khaleda Zia.
Earlier, Fakhrul together with BNP standing committee members Khandakar Mosharraf Hossain, Mirza Abbas, Nazrul Islam Khan, Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan and Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury held a meeting with the minister at his office from 2:30 to 3:05 pm.
Amid their deep worry about the health condition of Khaleda Zia in jail, the BNP leader met the home minister with their demand for better treatment to her.
Khaleda has been in jail since a special court convicted her in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on February 8 last year.
