Its not mild stroke but low blood sugar Quader

first_imgObaidul Quader, Mahbubey AlamAbout the suspicion of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chairperson Khaleda Zia’s personal physicians that she has suffered a mild stroke, ruling Bangladesh Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said she fell sick for low blood sugar level, reports UNB.Meanwhile, the attorney general, Mahbubey Alam, also echoed Quader saying Khaleda’s physicians were “spreading it just to get court sympathy”.”I’ve talked to the home minister and IG prisons over the matter. Though Khaleda’s physicians said she might have suffered from mild stroke, the physician of the jail said it is because of fall in her blood sugar level. It’s not a mild stroke,” said Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister.Obaidul was talking to reporters while visiting Dhaka-Tangail highway at Chandra of Gazipur.”We don’t support any negligence in Khaleda’s treatment and she has been requested to go abroad for treatment and undergo medical tests at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Hospital,” claimed the minister.Talking about the road condition and Eid journey, Quader said the four-lane Chandra-Elenga road will be opened to traffic on 12 June, aiming to ensure the smooth journey of homebound people.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the road after Eid, he said.Addressing a press briefing at his office after the High Court adjourned the hearing on a petition filed by Khaleda seeking bail in a Cumilla arson case, attorney general Mahbubey Alam dismissed Khaleda’s personal physicians’ claim.”It’s not true that she [Khaleda] had a mild stroke. It’s also not true that she became senseless or remained senseless. She had dizziness following a fall in her blood sugar level.” The BNP chairperson’s four personal physicians on Saturday met Khaleda at the abandoned central jail at Nazimuddin Road.”Khaleda Zia collapsed on the ground on 5 June but she cannot recall anything of the incident. We think she suffered a mild stroke,” professor SM Siddique of Dhaka Medical College Hospital’s medicine department told reporters.”I talked to the Inspector General (Prisons) before going to court today when he told me that Khaleda Zia’s sugar level dropped just before iftar on 5 June. But it’s not true that she became senseless. She had just giddiness. Instantly, she was fed with chocolate,” said the attorney general.”The IG (Prisons) and the Civil Surgeon would have been informed surely had she become senseless. They (BNP) are trying to mobilise public opinion using the issue,” he said.Mahbubey Alam smelt something fishy in physicians’ visit to the BNP chief just one day before the hearing on a case. “It’s shameful that physicians who should not be involved in politics are saying that she [Khaleda] remained senseless for 7-8 minutes,” he added.Meanwhile, law minister Anisul Huq and home minister Asaduzzaman Khan said BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia will be sent to BSMMU for medical tests following her personal physicians’ claim of mild stroke.last_img read more
