Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said the application seeking to send BNP chief Begum Khaleda Zia abroad for treatment is politically motivated.
“We pray for early recovery of Begum Khaleda Zia. BNP has also informed that Begum Zia is recovering rapidly. This is really a good news,” he said, replying to a query of newsmen at his official residence in the capital on Sunday.
Earlier, the minister addressed a function of distribution of food among the affected people due to COVID 19 online organised by Bangladesh Swadhinata Parishad (BSP) on the premises of RKK Degree College at Saidabad in the capital.
Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary, said Begum Khaleda Zia is getting optimum medical services of the country and the government specially the Prime Minister has given necessary directives to the concerned to ensure it.
“The report of COVID-19 of Begum Zia has become negative. For this, I would like to extend my thanks to the doctors,” he added.
“But, the purpose of the application of BNP seeking to take Begum Zia abroad for treatment is not reasonable. There is a political motive behind this as she (Begum Zia) is recovering through treatment,” said Hasan.
The minister said no country receives any corona positive patient.
