Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) authorities on Tuesday claimed that BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s health condition is improving.
“Khaleda Zia was admitted to our hospital 24 hours back. Her condition is now better than that of yesterday,” said BSMMU director Brig Gen AK Mahbubul Hoque while briefing reporters at the hospital this afternoon.
He came up with the claim citing Prof Zilan Miah Sarker, chairman of a five-member medical board.
The BSMMU director said the doctors examined Khaleda, also a former prime minister, on Tuesday and found improvement in her condition.
“She (Khaleda) is taking medicines for her diseases as per the prescription given yesterday (Monday). Her health condition has improved,” Brig Gen Hoque told the media men.
Asked about the BNP’s allegation that their chairperson was not given proper treatment when she was admitted there in October last year, the BSMMU director said: “We shouldn’t make any comment over the matter as he has been there at the hospital as a director for only two weeks. But I think she’s happy with her treatment this time.”
He said the BNP chief talked to the doctors on Monday in a happy mood. “She also talked to our board chairman spontaneously today (Tuesday). We shouldn’t talk about what happened last time. She’s receiving good treatment this time.”
Responding to a query form a reporter, the Brig Gen said the BNP chairperson now can move her hands. She also underwent BP checkup.
He, however, said Khaleda’s sugar level has not yet come under control. “The doctors will examine her sugar level tomorrow (Wednesday) again and take steps in this regard.”
Earlier on Monday, the Dhaka Central Jail authorities have admitted the former premier to BSMMU at Shahbagh around 12:45 pm for her treatment.
According to BSMMU doctors, the BNP chief has been suffering from severe pain in the joints of her hands and legs, insomnia and high sugar level.
