News Desk: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has commented that the dream Padma Bridge has been built as a result of people's trust and support. He said, “This new chapter of development has been unveiled today as a result of the confidence and support of the patriotic people. We will continue to work sincerely to fulfill the hopes, aspirations and dreams of the people in the days to come. ” Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina made the remarks in a message on Friday (June 24) on the occasion of the inauguration of the Padma Bridge on Saturday (June 25). In his message, Pramatta described the opening of the country's largest 'Padma Bridge' over the Padma River to traffic as a glorious historical day for Bangladesh. The country's largest 'Padma Bridge' over the Padma River will be opened to traffic on Saturday, the PM said, adding that all levels of local and foreign engineers, consultants, officers and employees, security personnel and construction workers are involved in the implementation of the challenging 'Padma Multipurpose Bridge Construction Project'. Greet everyone for their contribution and tireless work. Expressing gratitude to the people on both sides of the bridge for providing land and assisting in the implementation of the project in various ways, he extended heartfelt greetings and congratulations to the people on the occasion of the inauguration of the 'Padma Bridge'. Sheikh Hasina said, “The World Bank has filed a case alleging corruption in the Padma Multipurpose Bridge construction project. A Canadian court has ruled that all allegations made by the World Bank are false, fabricated and baseless. All allegations of corruption have been proven false. ” "We have decided not to take a loan from the World Bank," he said. When Bangladesh announced to build the bridge with its own funds, we got huge support from the people. Today we have completed the construction work of the dream Padma Bridge with our own funds keeping the power of the people in our hearts. I am grateful to the people. Bengalis have established themselves in the world as a nation of corruption free heroes. In the historic March 7th speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib, thunderously uttered - "We cannot oppress 70 million people" - we have proved our own ability by being inspired by this eternal message. " The Prime Minister said, “The construction of the Padma Bridge has established uninterrupted, cost-effective and fast communication with the capital in 21 districts of the south-west. The importance of this bridge in the multifaceted development of this region with immense potential is immense. New doors will be opened for the development of the region, especially in the industrial and tourism industries. Tourist arrivals will increase in various archeological and scenic places including the tomb of the father of the nation at Tungipara, Sundarbans and Kuakata beach. The Padma Bridge will play a significant role in harnessing the agricultural and fishery resources of the flood-prone coastal areas and in rapid marketing across the country. ” Sheikh Hasina said the 'Padma Bridge' would serve as a maternity ward in the communication system using the full capacity of Mongla seaport including the Pigeon seaport, bridges built over major rivers, Rampal and Pigeon power plants already established in the region during the Awami League government. International trade will increase through land ports like Darshan. The bridge will connect electricity, gas, optical fiber and other services at both ends. The implementation of the Padma Multipurpose Bridge Construction Project will increase the overall production of the country by 1.23 per cent and will make a unique contribution to socio-economic development by alleviating poverty at the rate of 0.64 per cent per annum.
