Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Director Brig Gen AK Mahbubul Haque said that the condition of BNP leader Khaleda Zia is good. He informed that she was admitted to the hospital at 1:45 pm. 

He said, “Khaleda Zia was admitted to the 6th floor’s 621no cabin and 622 has been kept for those who are in her help. We have allocated two cabins for them.”

He told this at a press briefing at the BSMMU conference room on Monday.

AK Mahbubul Haque said, “Khaleda Zia’s physical condition is good. A five-member medical board has been formed for her treatment.” 

“The medical board led by Dr Jilan Mia Sarkar, professor of Medicine Department, BSMMU. Besides, other members are- Dr Syed Atiqul Haque, professor of BSMMU’s Rheumatology Department, Dr Tanzima Parvin, assistant professor of Cardiology, Badrunnesa Ahmed,  assistant professor of Physical Medicine Department, Chowdhury Iqbal Mahmud, assistant professor of Orthopedic Surgery Department,” he also said.   

Meanwhile, Khaleda Zia has been examined several days ago. She was admitted to the hospital as their recommendation. 

Mahbubul Haque said, “The board members formed for Khaleda’s treatment came to see her and talked with her. In addition, they prescribed the necessary medicines for her. She will take those medicines from today.”  

During this, he said, “Khaleda’s personal physician Dr. Mamun is a co-assistant to the medical board.”

“As long as she is here, a specialist will see her everyday and informed daily updates,” Mahbubul Haque also said. 

Referring to Khaleda Zia’s physical condition, he said, “She has pain in hand and leg joints and her diabetes slightly increased. Khaleda Zia can walk with someone's support.” 

Asked whether Khaleda Zia needs to go abroad for better treatment, he said, “According to the condition of her physical state, we think BSMMU is enough.” 

Mentioning that Khaleda Zia has confidence on the medical broad, Mahbubul Haque further said, “Khaleda Zia spoke very nicely with the medical board and said she would take drugs according to their prescriptions.”

Asked whether she has been brought forcibly or not to BSMMU against her will, he said, “If Khaleda Zia did not agree, then she would not have been brought to the BSMMU for treatment.”
