Jatiya Party acting chairman GM Quader has said physicians are expecting that his brother HM Ershad, now on life support at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH), may get well with modern treatment.

"Unnecessary water from Ershad's body is being removed and infections are being controlled as he has been undergoing dialysis for the last two days. Doctors are hopeful he may get well with modern treatment," he said.

Speaking at a press briefing at Jatiya Party chairman's Banani office around noon, GM Quader, also said Ershad is still not out of danger.

He said Ershad has been on life support, and it will be removed when his condition becomes normal.

The acting party chairman expressed gratitude to several thousand people who thronged the CMH on Friday to donate blood following news about the necessity of blood for the Jatiya Party chief.

He also thanked people for praying for the speedy recovery of his brother.

The Jatiya Party acting chairman also said CMH doctors sent Ershad's reports to Singapore, but they did not suggest sending him there.

Meanwhile, deputy leader of the opposition in parliament Rowshan Ershad urged the country's people to pray for Ershad's quick recovery.

The 89-year-old former military strongman was put on life support around 4:10pm on July 4.

Ershad, also the leader of the opposition in parliament, was admitted to the CMH on June 26 as his condition deteriorated.

He has been suffering from various old age complications, including low haemoglobin and liver problem, high bilirubin and serious keen pain.
