Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader will undergo bypass surgery on Wednesday at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.

The matter was confirmed by Dr Abu Nasar Rizvi of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).

The surgery will be conducted at 10am (Singapore time).

Cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Sivathasan Cumaraswamy, a member of the medical board treating Quader, will conduct the surgery.

“Obaidul Quader’s blood pressure and diabetes is now under control and his physical condition is stable,” Sivathasan said.

The Road, Transport and Bridges Minister was admitted to BSMMU on March 3 with breathing complications, but tests revealed three blockages in his coronary artery.

He was flown to Singapore, the next day, for treatment at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital.

Cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Sivathasan Cumaraswamy, a member of the medical board treating Quader, also briefed his family members about his improvement.
