Her personal physicians are not allowed to visit her, Rizvi alleges
BNP has blamed the government for not providing proper treatment to its imprisoned Chairperson Khaleda Zia.
“Khaleda Zia is notbeing provided with proper treatment though she is seriously sick, and she is languishing in jail for 685 days though she did not commit any crime,” BNP Senior Joint Secretary General RuhulKabir Rizvi on Tuesday, reports UNB.
Rizvi made the statement while speaking at a press conference at the party’s NayaPaltan central office.
He also alleged that Khaledais being deprived of her due right to get bail due to the government’s obstruction.
The BNP leader saidthey are not getting any information about Khaleda’s condition and her treatment as her personal physicians Dr Shamim and Dr Mamun are not allowed to visit her.
“We are worried whether the government is playing any trick over her treatment and medication. Though her blood sugar remains above 12-14, she is not given proper treatment to control it,” he said.
Khaleda has been in jail since she was convicted in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case on February 8, 2018.
She was found guilty in another corruption case later the same year, though her party claims both cases are politically motivated.
The BNP chief has been receiving treatment at the BSMMU since April 1 this year.
Rizvi criticized Awami League General Secretary ObaidulQuader for his remark involving BNP with repression on minority community members during its rule in 2001.
He said the AwamiLeague leader made the remarks at a time when India is trying to make its Muslim citizens stateless and push them into Bangladesh as part of a master plan after enacting the Citizenship Amendment Act. “We think ObaidulQuader’s remark at this time is also part of that master plan (of India).”
He alleged that when the people of India and global community are raising voice against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA)and National Register of Citizens (NRC), the Awami League leader justified India’s anti-people move by spreading propaganda involving BNP in repression of minority communities.
