Obaidul Quader returns home
Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Bangladesh Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday returned home from Singapore after receiving treatment.
A Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight (BG-085) carrying Quader landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 5:55 pm.
AL joint general secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Jahangir Kabir Nanak and Abdur Rahman and other AL central leaders received Obaidul Quader on his return at the airport after 72 days.
UNB adds: Talking to reporters at the airport, Obaidul Quader said his debt burden to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has increased.
“She (Sheikh Hasina) is an affectionate mother …she’s really a mother of humanity. My debt burden to her has enhanced,” he said.
The AL general secretary also expressed gratitude to the people of the country and his party leaders and activists at all levels for praying for him.
Earlier, on March 3, the AL general secretary was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) hospital after suffering breathing complications.
Tests revealed three blockages in his coronary artery and later he was flown to Singapore for better treatment under the supervision of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The minister underwent a bypass surgery on March 20.
