Padma Bridge becomes bone in BNP’s throat: Hasan

Staff Reporter

Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said people across the country become happy and delighted for the opening of Padma Bridge, but BNP feels ashamed for the implementation of the mega project.

“It seems from the remarks of BNP that Padma Bridge has become bone in the throat of BNP,” he told journalists at the PID conference room at the Secretariat.

About BNP leader Ruhul Kabir Rizvi Ahmed’s comment stated that not more than 5,000 to 10,000 people joined Padma Bridge opening ceremony, Hasan said invitation letters were sent to only 3,000 people to join a gathering of dignitaries marking the Padma Bridge opening on that day and there was no scope from anyone apart from the invitees to join the programme.

All, including journalists, had to be tested negative for Covid-19 to join the ceremony, he added.

But tens of thousands people joined the public rally arranged by AL on the occasion of the Padma Bridge inauguration, said Hasan, also Awami League (AL) joint general secretary.

“If the common people were allowed to visit the bride on the opening day, I don’t know how much people in numbers would have gone there, all the people of the country might have gone there to have a glimpse of the bridge,” he added.
