BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s physical condition is unstable. The situation has not deteriorated in the last two days. However, the doctors do not want to call it improvement.
The condition was reported after talking to several people associated with Khaleda Zia’s treatment on Friday.
Khaleda Zia, who was convicted in the Zia Orphanage and Zia Charitable Trust corruption cases, was admitted to the Evercare Hospital in the capital more than once after being released on an executive order by the government. He was last admitted to Evercare Hospital on November 13 under cardiologist Shahabuddin Talukder. A six-member medical board has been formed for his treatment there. His treatment involves specialist doctors from at least two other large private hospitals in the capital.
Khaleda Zia is 6 years old. He is suffering from multiple complex diseases. New tests are being done in the hospital almost every day. He also underwent a medical examination at the Department of Nuclear Medicine yesterday afternoon. There were some tests last Wednesday afternoon.
Doctors’ sources told Prothom Alo that Khaleda Zia had undergone an operation on her body. In addition, there is a problem of bleeding in his small intestine. This problem has not been solved permanently yet.
A similar statement was made by a high-ranking official of Evercare Hospital on these two issues.
When this reporter went to the Evercare hospital yesterday morning, the authorities did not agree to give an official statement about the latest situation of Khaleda Zia. The Public Relations Department said, ‘We cannot talk about any patient without the permission of the patient. We don’t have that permission.
Another official said Khaleda Zia was brought downstairs in a wheelchair at 3pm last Thursday to undergo some tests. The officer then greeted Khaleda Zia. Khaleda Zia shook her head and answered the salutation. Another hospital official said the situation was not too bad.
However, Dr. AZM Zahid Hossain told Prothom Alo last night that problems could arise suddenly. Today is good, tomorrow is bad. There is no guarantee. The best doctors in the country have been brought together. They are trying their best. They also suggested taking him to the best medical institution in the world.
Meanwhile, Khaleda Zia’s party BNP is saying that her condition is critical. It is important to take him abroad for better treatment. Khaleda Zia’s family has repeatedly appealed to the government for permission. Although the government is saying this, legally it is not possible.
BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy said, “99.99 percent people of the country want Khaleda Zia to get better treatment abroad.” I don’t want just one. ‘ “We live in a strange country,” he said. In that country there is a movement for treatment. But medical is a basic human right.
Mentioning that Khaleda Zia is not free, Gayeshwar Roy said, “After the speech of the Prime Minister, the idea of the countrymen and all of us has become clear that Khaleda Zia is not free. He has been dumped at home instead of just in jail.
Gayeshwar Chandra Roy said, “The demand for the fall of the government should be more important to us than the demand for Khaleda Zia’s medical treatment.” Addressing the leaders and workers, he said, “You have to be constantly prepared to make what you have in mind a reality. There is never an explosion during the day. People’s movement does not run on remote control. No one has the remote control of the people’s explosion. That’s why I say, be ready and we will be ready.
