Road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Qauder’s health condition improved further after the bypass surgery, said professor Dr Abu Nasar Rizvi of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University.

‘His ‘Ando tranquil tube’ has been removed. Besides, the sleeping pills also are being reduced,’ said the BSMMU physician adding, ‘After removing his tube, the minister talked to me.’

Obaidul Quader, also general secretary of Bangladesh Awami League, underwent a successful bypass surgery at the hospital on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal visited the minister at the Mount Elizabeth hospital in Singapore on Friday afternoon.

Quader was admitted to BSMMU on March 3 following breathing complications and tests revealed three blockages in his coronary arteries.

He was flown to Singapore the next day for treatment at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
