The party’s Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the programme at a press conference at the party’s Nayapaltan central office today.

Khaleda Zia landed in jail back in February after conviction in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case, where she was handed a five-year jail term.

Later, she was also convicted in Zia Charitable Trust graft case and handed a seven-year term.

“Khaleda Zia is very sick now and passing her days in jail amid hardship. She is suffering from mental and physical torture in the jail,” Rizvi said.

Her blood tests have not been conducted yet and she has been suffering from diabetics, but has not been given any treatment for it, Rizvi said.

The BNP leader also urged the authority concerned to treat Khaleda Zia at a specialised hospital according to her will.
