The physical condition of Jatiya Party (JP) Chairman and opposition leader in the parliament Hussain Muhammad Ershad is stable. He is being given oxygen support.

The information was delivered by party’s acting chairman and Ershad’s brother GM Kader after holding a press conference on behalf of the party at the party’s Banani office on Sunday evening.

GM Kader said, we are satisfied over the treatment but the situation has not turned into that stage to send him abroad.

Earlier the former army ruler was kept at the Critical Care Unit (CCU) of Combined Military Hospital (CMH). He was admitted in the hospital on Wednesday.

Party sources said that Ershad’s condition deteriorated suddenly from Sunday afternoon.

The over 90 years old former president is suffering from different complexities. He obtained treatment from abroad before December 30 election last year. After that Ershad elected his younger brother GM Kader as his successor in the party.  

Mentionable, army chief Ershad took the state power by imposing martial law on March 24, 1982. Like Ziaur Rahman he also formed his political party ‘Jatiya Party’ while remaining in power. He was forced to leave power due to mass upsurge on December 6, 1990.
