Bangladesh Nationalist Party-BNP standing committee members have exchanged Eid greetings with party chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia.

Six members of the BNP policymaking body, including Jamiruddin Sircar, Mirza Abbas, Abdul Moyeen Khan, Gayeshwar Chandra Roy, Nazrul Islam Khan, and Selima Rahman, entered the BNP chief’s Gulshan residence around 8:30 pm on Thursday.

They inquired about Begum Zia’s health condition alongside exchanging Eid greetings with her during their nearly one and a half hours meeting.

Later, talking to reporters, Jamiruddin Sircar said, It’s a courtesy meeting on the occasion of Eid. There’s no political discussion in the meeting. We exchanged greetings with her and asked how she was doing.

He said that Begum Zia greeted the country’s people through them on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.

Asked about Begum Zia’s physical condition, Sircar, also a former speaker, said they did not see much improvement in her condition.

He said the BNP chief needs treatment in an advanced centre abroad as advised by the doctors.
