Logo of BNPA high-profile BNP delegation is going to meet home minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Tuesday afternoon to discuss party chairperson Khaleda Zia’s health condition and her treatment, reports UNB.BNP standing committee members, led by its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, will meet the minister at 2:30pm at his secretariat office as per the schedule given by him, Khaleda’s personal secretary ABM Sattar told UNB on Monday.He said the home minister has given his nod for talks with the BNP delegation as Fakhrul contacted him over phone Monday.Sattar said most of the standing committee members will accompany Fakhrul during the meeting.He said the BNP delegation will discuss various issues relating to Khaleda Zia’s treatment and her illness.BNP leaders have long been alleging for the last few days that their chairperson’s health condition has deteriorated sharply and she needs to receive better treatment.Earlier in the day, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said Khaleda Zia herself told the makeshift court on Sunday that her physical condition is not god. “Like the country’s people, we’re very worried about her gradually falling health condition.”The BNP leader called upon prime minister Sheikh Hasina to shun ‘brutal and vindictive’ attitude towards her arch rival and former prime minister Khaleda Zia.”Release our leader instead of creating any obstacle towards granting her bail. Even, such inhuman attitude was not shown to the political prisoners in the colonial era. Don’t sacrifice civilisation, justice and humanity only to cling to power illegally. Eschew inhumanity and allow our leader to receive proper treatment through releasing her from jail,” he said.He also announced that their party will form a human chain in front of the Nation Press Club from 11am to 12pm on Wednesday demanding the unconditional release of Khaleda Zia and proper treatment of her.BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has been in jail since a special court convicted her in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on 8 February last year. BNP termed the case politically motivated.
