Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader underwent a successful bypass surgery at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore, said Prof Dr Abu Nasar Rizvi of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).

He said that Cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Sivathasan Cumaraswamy, a member of the medical board treating Quader, conducted the surgery around 2 pm.

After surgery, the minister, also general secretary of Bangladesh Awami League, has been kept at post-operative care, said Dr Rizvi after Dr Sivathasan Cumaraswamy's briefing on Obaidul Quader’s health condition.

His consciousness is expected to come back within three hours.

The family members of the minister sought blessings from the countrymen for his quick recovery.

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

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