Jatiya Party chairman Ershad passes away
Former president of Bangladesh and Jatiya Party chairman Hussain Muhammad Ershad breathed his last at Combined Military Hospital in Dhaka on Sunday morning.
He was 89.
JP presidium member and Ershad’s relative Khaled Akhter told Prothom Alo that the former president passed away around 7:45am.
JP acting chairman GM Quader on Saturday said the organs of his brother HM Ershad, who was on life support at the CMH, were not working properly.
Physicians have long been trying to make his kidney and liver functions normal, but there is no desired improvement in this regard, he added.
Ershad, also the leader of the opposition in parliament, was admitted to the CMH on 27 June as his condition deteriorated.
