"The home minister said he will consider the application positively and send to the foreign ministry," Shamim said.
Khaleda Zia has been admitted to Evercare Hospital in Dhaka. She was shifted from the hospital cabin to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) in the afternoon due to shortness of breath since Monday morning.
Several members of Khaleda's medical team formed for his treatment said that the team is regularly reviewing her condition and till now they are satisfied with the situation.
A personal doctor of Khaleda said that she used to take treatment in Singapore and London regularly. The doctors involved in her treatment knew well about her condition. So, the treatment would have been better if she had been taken out of the country once again.
In this case, the doctor supported taking her to Singapore.
