BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that people do not have confidence in the country's health system anymore, as it has completely collapsed.
"Babu's [Shafiul Bari Babu's] death in such a way has exposed that Bangladesh's health system has completely collapsed. His illness and death have also proved that people can't be confident about the system," he said.
The BNP leader made the comment while talking to reporters after visiting the house of Swechchasebak Dal President Shafiul Bari Babu, who died on Tuesday.
Fakhrul said the country's health system itself has become a problem for patients, as people do not get proper treatment and authentic diagnosis reports.
"Many asked why the country's people go abroad for treatment. People are forced to, as they can't undergo even proper diagnosis here," he observed.
Terming Babu a talented leader, Fakhrul said, "We can't imagine a popular and conscious leader like Babu leave us in such a way. He had all the qualities to be a big leader."
Fakhrul said Babu left his wife and two children in such a condition that they have no place to take shelter.
"I urge all of our party leaders and activists to extend their helping hand to Babu's family."
The BNP leader came to Babu's rented house in the capital's Eskaton and talked to Babu's wife and children.
