Due to the complex physical condition of BNP chairperson, new discussion has started about sending him abroad for better treatment. A fresh application has already been made by the family. The application is currently with the Law Ministry.
The wave of discussion has spread in the Bangladeshi community in the UK. Begum Zia also received treatment in several hospitals in the UK.
A source said that there is pressure on the government to send Khaleda Zia abroad. However, the decision regarding when and where permission will be sent has not yet been finalized.
Meanwhile, another rumor has said that the government has given permission to Khaleda Zia for treatment abroad, but wants to make conditions by mentioning the names of some countries. In that case, treatment should be done in Singapore, Thailand or any Asian country.
Adviser to BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and former International Secretary of the party Mahidur Rahman said, if the government had the will, they could have sent Begum Zia abroad for treatment much earlier. Talking about the law is just an excuse here. BNP wants Germany or USA or UK. He mentioned as the reason that the BNP chairperson had previously undergone treatment in these countries. If Khaleda Zia is not physically fit enough to board the plane, then there is no use in giving the opportunity to take her abroad.
BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia’s advisor and party’s UK branch president MA Malek said, Begum Khaleda Zia’s life is on the brink of death. If the government still does not allow her to get medical treatment outside the country or imposes conditions on the country where the treatment will take place, then it must be understood that they want to kill our chairperson.
In response to another question, he said that they are ready to arrange everything including air ambulance, flight and hospital as soon as the government gives the opportunity for her treatment.
Nasir Ahmad Shaheen, president of Sechchasevak Dal United Kingdom branch and central international secretary, said that the government wants Begum Zia to be treated outside the United Kingdom and Madam’s family and BNP leaders want to be treated in the United Kingdom. Because here are the members of madam’s family. The sooner treatment is arranged outside for our Madam, it will be better for Madam and also for the government.
BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia is undergoing treatment at Evercare Hospital in the capital for more than 50 days. Still, the health of the former three-time prime minister has not improved much. Rather, the situation is deteriorating day by day. Sometimes he has shortness of breath. To be taken in the Coronary Care Unit (CCU). He has watery stomach due to cirrhosis of the liver. It has to be constantly figured out. This 78-year-old former prime minister is standing at the crossroads of life and death.
An analyst of Bangladesh politics and contemporary affairs living in Britain told this reporter on condition of anonymity, Khaleda Zia has the best medical facilities in Germany, but if the government allows her to be taken there at a time when she is no longer physically able to to travel, then there is no use in providing her with medical facilities abroad.
During Corona, the government did not take the risk of keeping Begum Zia in jail. Similarly, Begum Zia’s physical condition is not such that she will return to active politics even if she recovers. And nothing about the physical condition of Begum Khaleda Zia is unknown to the government. In the current political situation of the country, the image of the government in the international arena is in crisis. The government will not want to take the risk of anything happening in the country without her treatment abroad. Therefore, even if there is an attempt at political negotiations, the government will eventually give Begum Zia an opportunity to take her out for treatment. Now it’s about time.
BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is being ‘taken abroad’ – a campaign has spread on social media, but sources in her party and family say they have yet to receive any indication from the government to allow her to be taken abroad for treatment.
Her brother has applied for the government’s permission to take Ms. Zia abroad, stating that it is essential to receive treatment at an “advanced medical center” abroad to save her life.
In the meantime, he was taken to the CCU from the hospital cabin again on Friday. Later she was returned to cabin on Bangladesh time Friday night.
A source in the ruling party said to Daily Dazzling Dawn, Khaleda Zia will not get medical treatment abroad without some kind of political compromise with the ruling party.
