She also sent a card to her special envoy and Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad, Hasina’s Deputy Press Secretary Ashraful Alam Khokon told on Thursday.

Ershad’s party emerged as the main opposition party in Parliament after the BNP-led alliance boycotted the 2014 general elections.

His wife, Raushon, became the Leader of the Opposition in Parliament, while the former president was appointed the prime minister’s special envoy.

Hasina’s Protocol Officer Khurshid Alam handed the card to Ershad’s Assistant Private Secretary Md Monjurul Islam at the Parliament office in the afternoon.

Alam delivered the other card to Opposition Leader Raushon’s Assistant Private Secretary Sujaul Islam at her office.

A greetings card from the prime minister was sent to the BNP’s Naya Paltan headquarters in the afternoon.

Former prime minister Khaleda is currently in the UK for medical treatment. She will spend the Eid there with her eldest son Tarique Rahman.
