Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said BNP was trying to politicize their leader Khaleda Zia’s health issue turning it a matter of “cruel farce”, reports BSS.

“I want to urge the BNP leaders not to be so heartless,” he told a discussion to mark Bangamata Begum Fazilatunnesa Mujib’s 89th birth anniversary at the Jatiya Press Club auditorium.

Hasan alleged that BNP continued to put its efforts to use Khaleda’s health issue for its political purpose with an evil intension while the government ensured the ex-premier’s best possible treatment despite her imprisonment on graft charges.

The minister asked if any inmate in any South Asian country ever got such privileges or facilities.
