BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday alleged that the government is out with an ‘evil plan’ to kill Khaleda Zia in jail.
"The family members of our leader Khaleda Zia met her in jail yesterday (Thursday). "We're not only concerned, but also got surprised and disappointed over what they told us about her health condition," said Fakhrul.
Speaking at a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office, he further said, "No step is being taken for her medical treatment though she is seriously ill. The government, out of its political vengeance, is making heinous evil efforts to kill her by keeping her in jail."
Under the circumstances, Fakhrul said, their party is going to send a letter to the Home Minister today seeking permission so that its senior leaders can meet Khaleda in jail to see for themselves her health condition, UNB reports.
He urged the government to take steps for ensuring Khaleda's better treatment in any specialised private hospital and free her from jail to save her life.
