BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir will exchange views with journalists on Tuesday over the country’s overall political situation.
He will also talk about their party chairperson’s Khaleda Zia’s health condition and the party’s plan to intensify the ongoing movement seeking her treatment abroad, the BNP chief’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan told journalists on Monday, reports UNB.
Sayrul said Fakhrul is likely to seek the opinions of journalists about their party’s next course of action ahead of the 12th parliamentary election.
He said the BNP secretary general will also take the opinions of the journalists about their movement demanding Khaleda be allowed to go abroad for advanced treatment.
Khaleda, a 76-year-old former prime minister, was readmitted to Evercare Hospital on November 13, six days after she had returned home from the hospital.
The BNP chief's physicians said she has been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ophthalmological and dental complications.
They also said Khaleda needs advanced treatment abroad immediately as she is also suffering from critical cardiac, kidney and liver problems while her blood sugar is out of control and hemoglobin level in her blood has dropped.
However, Law Minister Anisul Huq said the government will consider Khaleda Zia’s appeal if she submits a fresh petition after returning to jail.
