Jatiya Oikyafront, the opposition platform, on Sunday sent a letter to prison authorities to allow them to meet ailing BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).
The alliance's five leaders led by Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Rob) President Abdur Rob will meet Khaleda in the first phase, said Oikyafront Office Secretary Jahangir Alam Mintoo.
Four other leaders are JSD Vice-President Tania Rob, Nagorik Oikya
Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna, Gonoforum General Secretary Reza Kibria and Gonoshasthya Kendra founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury.
As per the discussion with Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan during a meeting on October 22, he said they sent the letter mentioning the names of five Oikyafront leaders to the IG Prison to meet the BNP Chief in the first phase.
Mintoo said they requested the jail authorities to allow the five leaders to meet Khaleda either on Monday or Tuesday.
He said four-five other Oikyafront 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.
