Govt consciously pushing Khaleda into death: Fakhrul

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said the government is consciously pushing the party chairperson Khaleda Zia, who is suffering from liver cirrhosis, into death.

“We have been repeatedly telling that very much consciously Khaleda Zia is being killed gradually, after convicting her in false case. All countries of the world also know it,” he said.

The BNP leader came up with the statement while speaking at a human chain arranged by Jatiyatabadi Krishak Dal, in front of the Jatiya Press Club in the capital on Friday.

Other opposition political parties, different organizations and intellectuals also urged the government to allow Khaleda Zia to go abroad for treatment, he said.

About health condition of Khaleda Zia, who is now undergoing treatment at Evercare hospital in the capita, the BNP secretary general said, “She is now bleeding, if such situation continues for long, she won’t survive.”    Khaleda Zia is fighting for life as she is not getting better treatment for liver cirrhosis here in Bangladesh, he also said.

The advanced treatment of liver cirrhosis is available in the USA, UK and Germany, he added.

BNP and its associate organizations have been staging demonstration across the country since November 25 demanding release of Khaleda Zia and her treatment abroad.

The party’s 8-day programme on the issue will end through Chhatra Dal’s programme on Saturday.
