Bidisha, former wife of late Jatiya Party Chairman Hussain Muhammad Ershad, on Sunday claimed that her ex-husband Ershad expressed his last wish to be buried in Rangpur after his death.
Bidisha revealed this in a Facebook post today saying she also wish to see HM Ershad’s burial in Rangpur. “Just like millions of party leaders and activists, I also want that Ershad’s last destination would be Rangpur.”She came up with this revelation when a dilemma about Ershad’s burial has been arisen.
Ershad’s family members want to bury the body of former president and the military ruler at Military Graveyard in the capital.
But leaders and activists of Jatiya Party’s Rangpur region want their leader has to be laid to eternal rest at his birthplace in Rangpur. They have been demanding to bury their leader’s body remain in Rangpur. They already started digging grave at ‘Pallinibash’, Ershad’s residence in Rangpur.
In her facebook post, Bidisha wrote that Ershad several time told her, “I want to be buried at this ‘Pallinibash’, I could not repay the love and rewards of Rangpur’s people yet. I want people of Rangpur would keep me in their prayers after my death and would pour their blessing to me visiting at my grave.”
