BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will celebrate Eid-ul-Azha with her close relatives, including sister Selina Islam and granddaughter Zahiya Rahman at her Gulshan residence on Sunday.
Selina will go to Khaleda’s house bringing traditional food items at noon on Eid, while senior BNP leaders, including secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, will exchange greetings with her in the evening.
Talking to UNB, Selina said her sister is still sick and remains under the observation of doctors.

“So, we can’t always meet her directly any time we desire. As tomorrow (Sunday) is Eid, I will go to her house and spend the day with her,” she said.
Selina said Khaleda’s granddaughter Zahia, the younger daughter of late Arafat Rahman Koko, will also spend the Eid day with her.
She said some other close relatives, including her younger brother Shamim Eskandar's wife Nasrin Eskandar and mothers-in-law of her two sons, are also likely to meet the BNP chief.
Thrice-former prime minister Khaleda, 76, has long been suffering from various ailments, including liver cirrhosis, arthritis, diabetes, heart, kidney, lung and eye problems.

She returned home after a 14-day stay in the capital's Evercare Hospital on June 24. The hospital visit was prompted by a mild heart attack, that led to doctors inserting an artificial ring, or stent, in one of her arteries where it had 95% blockage.
Two more blockages were found in the arteries of the BNP chairperson through a coronary angiogram, which may require stenting later.
