Tuesday, 28 September 2021

The Padma Bridge will be opened before June next year, said Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday.

The Awami League General Secretary said this while virtually attending a Doa mahfil and Quran distribution programme to mark Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's 75th birthday at Naria upazila in Shariatpur district.

"You have lost your lands, houses for PM's vision of Padma Bridge which is already visible," the minister said to the people of Shariatpur.

Quader said Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the much-cherished bridge, according to UNB.
