Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Qauder informed that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has ordered to provide Khaleda Zia with every facility she needs during her visit to Cox’s Bazar.
He informed reporters at a press conference held at the secretariat on Sunday.
The minister said, “The PM explicitly mentioned that Khaleda Zia is the former Prime Minister of Bangladesh and she can stay at the circuit house and use the VIP room.”
“She (Hasina) asked us to make ensure that there is no lacking in her hospitality.”
Obaidul said: “BNP chairperson requested to use the circuit houses in different districts during her journey to Cox’s Bazar and the deputy commissioners of Feni, Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar had called me to ask about it.”
“The PM gave the order when I informed her of the request.”
The minister also added that the deputy commissioners were also ordered to use the Roads Division rest house if the circuit house not able to accommodate everyone.
However, the minister previously said that Hasina was not allowed to use the same VIP room of Chittagong Circuit House but now Khaleda Zia has been granted permission to use it.
