Ruling Awami League today cast a bright light on the condition of its General Secretary Obaidul Quader and said he will return home in a week or two.
His (Quader) condition is improving, Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif said at a briefing at AL President’s Dhanmondi office this afternoon.
“Doctors at Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital have been observing Quader and we have come to know about his condition from them,” he said.
“He will recover completely and return in a week or two,” he said.
A medical board constituted with Dr Koh Siam Soon Philip, a senior consultant cardiologist at the Singapore’s hospital, as its head examined the minister yesterday and held a briefing on the treatment.
About BNP’s allegation about discrimination in the treatment provided to Quader and BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, he replied: “Obaidul Quader is a brave freedom fighter.He is one of the best citizens in the country. It’s sad and shameful to compare the AL leader with Khaleda”.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, was flown to Singapore on Monday for better treatment as per advice of renowned Indian cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty.
He was admitted to the Bangladesh Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) on Sunday morning following breathing complications. Later, doctors conducted an angiogram and found three blocks in his coronary arteries.
Doctors at Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital are said to be considering a bypass surgery.
