Former mayor of undivided Dhaka City Corporation and BNP vice chairman Sadeque Hossain Khoka is fighting for life at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan, New York.
“His passport has also been outdated. So, it has become difficult to take him back to the country according to his last will. Even if he dies, there is uncertainty whether his body could be taken back to Dhaka due to passport implications,” Ishraq added.“Doctors have given up hope of improving health condition of my father and stopped all sorts of treatment,” Ishraque said.
Khoka, a freedom fighter, stepped into politics through Moulana Bhasani’s National Awami Party (NAP). Later, he joined BNP, and was made the party’s Dhaka city unit president.
