The political front asked jail authorities to allow five of its leaders for the meeting  

Jatiya Oikya Front has sent a letter to prison authorities seeking permission for its five leaders to meet BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia at Bangabandhu Sheik Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).

Oikya Front Office Secretary Jahangir Alam Mintoo confirmed the matter on Sunday, reports UNB.

He said their five leaders, led by Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Rab) President Abdur Rab, will meet Khaleda in the first phase.

The four other leaders are JSD vice-president Tania Rob, Nagorik Oikya Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna, Gono Forum General Secretary Reza Kibria and Gonoshasthaya Kendra Founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury

As per the discussion with Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal during a meeting on October 22, Jahangir said they sent the letter mentioning the names of five Oikya Front leaders to the inspector general (IG) Prisons to meet the BNP chief in the first phase.

He said, they requested the jail authorities to allow the five leaders to meet Khaleda either on Monday or Tuesday.

He said four-five other Oikya Front leaders will meet the BNP chairperson later in the second phase.

Khaleda has been in jail since she was convicted in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case in February 8, 2018. She was found guilty in another corruption case later the same year, though her party claims both the cases are “politically motivated.”

She has been receiving treatment at the BSMMU since April 1 last.
