Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said plans are being made to build a tunnel instead of the second Padma Bridge to retain the navigability of the Padma.

He made the remarks at a seminar on the occasion of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s birthday at the Institution of Engineers in the capital on Friday.

The Awami League General Secretary added when four mega projects will be implemented one by one within next year, the BNP leaders will see sparks before the eyes.

Obaidul Quader said the BNP has further isolated itself by withdrawing from the UP elections.
