Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader returned home on Wednesday after receiving medical treatment in Singapore for 72 days.
A flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines carrying the Obaidul Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 5:55pm, said the ministry’s deputy principal information officer Abu Naser.
Central Awami League leaders including joint general secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Jahangir Kabir Nanak and Abdur Rahman received Quader on his arrival at the airport.
Talking to reporters at the airport, Obaidul Quader said his debt to the party’s president and prime minister Sheikh Hasina has increased.
‘Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is a caring mother. She [Sheikh Hasina] is really mother of humanity,’ he said.
