BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia is going to return home this (Tuesday) evening from the capital’s Evercare Hospital after a long treatment for her various health complications.
“Doctors have decided to discharge Madam (Khaleda) from the hospital this evening,” her media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan told UNB.
He said Khaleda will leave the hospital for her Gulshan residence around 6pm.
Sayrul said the medical board, formed to ensure Khaleda’s treatment, will hold a press conference on her health condition at the hospital at 6pm.
Khaleda, a 76-year-old former prime minister, has been receiving treatment at Evercare Hospital for various health complications since November 13.
Her medical board members said Khaleda immediately needs to go abroad for better treatment as she was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis.
On behalf of her family, Khaleda's younger brother, Shamim Iskander, submitted an application to the Home Ministry on November 11 urging the government to allow her to go abroad for better treatment.
The government still did not dispose of the application while ministers are saying the BNP chief has no scope to go abroad until she files a fresh application returning to jail.
