President, PM greet all involved with Padma Bridge project

President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday (June 24) greeted all who were involved in the implementation of the Padma Bridge project as the bridge will be inaugurated tomorrow.

On the eve of the historic day, they also greeted the countrymen issuing separate messages.

In his message, the President said: “I am very happy to know that the Padma Bridge, a symbol of Bangladesh’s self-reliance and self-respect, is being inaugurated. I extend my best wishes to all those involved in the implementation of this project.”

He said that one of the prerequisites for the socio-economic development of a country is the development of communication system.

As a result of adoption and implementation of extensive development activities of the government, unprecedented improvement has been achieved in the communication system of the country, the head of the state added.

Many mega projects including Metrorail, Elevated Expressway and Karnafuli Tunnel are being implemented, he said, adding: “Today, the Padma Bridge stands as a symbol of the nation’s glory in the heart of the turbulent Padma (river).”

He lauded Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as the premier is leading from the forefront of these achievements.

Due to her (the premier’s) courage, strong steps and timely decisions, the construction of the Padma Bridge has been possible with the own funds of Bangladesh, Hamid said.

“The implementation of this bridge has given us the courage to stand high with confidence across the globe as a symbol of wealth management, transparency, accountability and efficiency,” he continued.

The president hoped that this bridge will play an important role in the socio-economic development of the country through increasing trade, investment and industrialization.
