Fazle Rabbi was admitted to Mount Sinai hospital in New York for cancer treatment nine months ago.
He was elected to parliament as an Awami League candidate for the seventh time from the Gaibandha-5 seat (Phulchhari-Saghata) in the 2018 national polls.
Fazle Rabbi was born in Batia village of Gaibandha's Saghata Upazila in 1946.
He made his first foray into politics in 1958 when he participated in the Awami League's campaign opposing the imposition of martial law following a military coup led by Ayub Khan. He was only an eighth-grader at the time.
