Ershad put on life support

Jatiya Party (JaPa) Chairman HM Ershad, now undergoing treatment at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka, has been put on life support.

He has been placed on life support at 4:15 pm on Thursday, said former Secretary General of the party Jiauddin Bablu.

Earlier, his wife JaPa’s Senior Co-Chairman Begom Rowshan Ershad and brother acting chairman GM Quader visited him at the ICU of the hospital.

Presidium members Anisul Islam Mahmud, Sunil Shubha Roy, Major (rdt) Khaled Akter, Alamgir Shikder Loton and Joint Secretary General SM Yasir were present.

Ershad was admitted to CMH due to old-age complications on June 26. 

The JaPa chief has been suffering from serious ailments for the last nine months. He also went to a Singapore hospital after the national election.

Ershad attended only one sitting of the maiden session of the 11th parliament formed through the December 30 election. He didn’t attend the second session of the parliament due to serious physical ailments.

He last appeared at a public gathering at an Iftar Mahfil programme at Westin Dhaka.
