Awami League Joint General Secretary and Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said although all people of the country become happy as the Padma Bridge opened, the BNP could not be happy.
Dr Hasan said this to the journalists while joining Padma Bridge opening function at Mawa point in Munshiganj this morning.
"Country's all people are overwhelmed today . . . if there is any scope, all people would try to attend the Padma Bridge opening ceremony," said the minister.
Those who opposed the Padma Bridge are now ashamed. Those who stopped financing the Padma Bridge are also happy today that Bangladesh has built the Padma Bridge with its own finance. The United States has congratulated; Pakistan Prime Minister also.
‘Sad but true, the BNP could not congratulate. This is their extreme political misery. Through this, they have admitted that they opposed the Padma Bridge. Although the people of Bangladesh are happy, the BNP could not be happy," he said.
Dr Hasan also said the Padma Bridge opening day on June 25 is the most rejoicing day after the 50 years of independence of the country.
"The Padma Bridge opening day is the most cheerful day for all the countrymen. . . the entire nation is now enjoying the same festivity which was held 50 years ago after the Independence," he said.
Terming the Bangalees as the 'nation of hero', the ruling party leader said, "We never concede defeat and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has proved it once again through destroying all the conspiracies designed by vested quarters."
