Prime minister has been informed about the issue, he says

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the ongoing problem of Jahangirnagar University (JU) is being examined as the prime minister has been informed about the issue.

"The problem of Jahangirnagar University is being examined. Necessary measures will be taken to this end," he said on Friday.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, was inspecting the construction works on Nabinagar-Chandra highway at Savar, on the outskirts of Dhaka when he made the remarks, reports BSS. 

Officials of Roads and Highways Department and local leaders of Awami League were present on the occasion.

Replying to a question about the countrywide councils of different organizational units of the party, Quader said directives have been given to leaders and workers concerned so that no controversial person can get a place in the fresh committees of the party.

About BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia's treatment, the Awami League leader said the picture of Khaleda Zia's health condition portrayed by her party leaders does not match with the observations of the physicians of the medical board.

"BNP leaders are saying Khaleda Zia's condition is not good. But the physicians of the medical board say she is well," he said.

Quader said BNP leaders are not anxious about Khaleda's health, rather they want to make a political issue capitalizing on her illness.
