BNP’ senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has urged the his party leaders and activists not to crowd at the BSMMU hospital, from where their chief Khaleda Zia is set to be freed from imprisonment as per government’s decision.
The BNP leader made the call as around 50 supporters and dozens of media workers gathered at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University after the government announced the decision to grant her a six-month conditional release on Tuesday, reports bdnews24.com.
The BSMMU authorities asked the crowds to disperse through loudspeaker as the country is under a virtual lockdown with strict measures imposed for social distancing to stop the spread of the virus.
“Please take care of your own health,” Rizvi, the senior joint secretary general of the BNP, told the leaders and activists at the time.
“You must focus on measures to save your own lives. Don’t crowd here unnecessarily. I request the leaders and activists to be in isolation and not to crowd here,” he added.
Rizvi also said the party would make arrangements to keep Khaleda at her home following the instructions of the World Health Organization and doctors for her safety.
“Because she is already ill,” he pointed out.
