Today is a historic day in the history of Bangladesh. The inauguration of the Padma Bridge, the country's largest communication project, took place on Saturday (June 25). With the dedicated efforts and courage of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the bridge was built with its own funds, connecting the entire country with 21 districts in the southern and western regions of the country. The construction of the Padma Bridge will bring about revolutionary changes in all aspects of the country's economy, trade and commerce, social, cultural, medical, tourism and sports. On behalf of the Bangladesh national cricket team, Test captain Shakib Al Hasan and ODI captain Tamim Iqbal thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for making her one-time dream come true. The Tigers are currently in the Caribbean to play a bilateral series against the West Indies. In a video message during the second Test in St. Lucia, Shakib-Tamim expressed excitement over the inauguration of the dream Padma Bridge. In a video message uploaded on the BCB's official Facebook page, Shakib said, "Many thanks to the Prime Minister. Especially on behalf of the people of the South.

I thank the Prime Minister for that. I hope this Padma bridge will take the economy of Bangladesh further. ' In another video, Tamim said, "I think this is a huge achievement for Bangladesh. There was a time when we were not sure whether the Padma Bridge would happen or not. Butt thank you very much Hon'ble Prime Minister. Because of his dedication, because of his efforts, we got the Padma Bridge today. " ‘Of course I will say that too. Who were involved with this project. Many thanks to them too.
