Khaleda reaches London

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia reached London on Sunday on a personal tour for her medical treatment.

A regular flight of Emirates Airlines carrying Khaleda Zia landed at the Heathrow Airport around 12:50pm (BD times), her media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan said, reports UNB.

Khaleda’s eldest son and BNP senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman along with UK chapter leaders and activists of the party received her at the airport.

Earlier, Khaleda left Dhaka for London at about 7:35pm on Saturday. The emirate flight had a stopover for two hours in Dubai at midnight.

This is her third trip to London since she left office in 2007 as she visited the UK in 2015, in 2011 and in 2008 to receive treatment and met her son, who has long been living there.

A leader of BNP’s UK chapter said Zia family will have a reunion after nearly two years in London as Khaleda is going to stay at the residence of Tarique where his wife, daughter and late brother Arafat Rahman Koko’s wife and two daughters reside.

Though it is the BNP chief’s personal tour, he said the UK chapter BNP leaders, Bangladeshi expatriates and some UK’s ruling and opposition parties’ leaders are likely to meet her during her stay there.

A BNP leader close to Khaleda said she may return home from the UK after celebrating Eid-ul-Azha there with her family members unless there is no major political development here.
