An executive order from the government could clear the way for Khaleda Zia, allowing her to travel abroad for treatment, Nazrul Islam Khan, a standing committee member of the BNP, has said.
He added that to seek the permission, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia does not need to go to jail, or court judgment, stating, "In the past, there were instances of many convicts, including Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD) leader ASM Rab, receiving treatment abroad."
Nazrul Islam was addressing a brief rally of the Kishorerganj-bound Mymensingh divisional road march, organised by the Mymensingh metropolitan BNP.
Nazrul Islam Khan remarked, "Awami League distorted the High Court's judgment and amended the law to suit their interests. When we advocate for a caretaker government, the government cites the constitution. Yet, in 1996, when the Awami League sought a caretaker government, there was no mention of a caretaker government in the constitution either."
Nazrul Islam Khan also remarked, "During our tenure, there was no such thing as 'Begumpara,' there was no 'second home' facility, and there was no 'Gulshan-3' in Dubai. We haven't heard of this before. The government knows who sends the hard-earned money of the country's taxpayers abroad, yet they do not bring them to book."
