He also said there was no scope in reconsidering the recent gas price hike

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said a medical board will decide whether BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia should stay at hospital as she is now being treated at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University Hospital.

“The medical board and jail authority will decide how many days Khaleda Zia should stay at hospital,” he said at a press conference at the Awami League president’s Dhanmondi political office in Dhaka on Friday, reports BSS.

Asked if Khaleda sought parole, Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said there are some conditions to seek parole and “if she does not have any valid reason, why will she seek parole?”

He, however, said it was up to the government to decide whether she would get parole or not if she wanted it.

About Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s China visit, the minister said: “China is our development partner. During the visit, MoUs of $2 billion were signed with China.”

Quader said Sheikh Hasina strongly projected the Rohingya crisis to the Chinese leaders and China assured her of mounting pressures on Myanmar to bring back their nationals from Bangladesh.

About the gas price hike, the minister said there are some logical reasons in increasing the gas price but the government high-ups could reconsider the proposed hike. “But I do not think there is any scope to reconsider it,” he said.

Awami League Organizing Secretaries – – State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury and Deputy Minister for Education Barrister Mohibul Hassan Chowdhoury Nowfel, Relief and Social Welfare Secretary Sujit Roy Nandi, Deputy Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua and Central Working Committee member SM Kamal Hossain, among others, were present on the occasion.
