Padma Bridge is not just a symbol of capability, it is a huge slap in the face of conspirators, said Awami League organizing secretary Mirza Azam.
He was speaking at a meeting organized by the Awami Juba League at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) auditorium in the capital on Thursday.
The preparatory meeting of the Juba League was held with the representatives of all the districts of South Bengal on June 25 with the aim of making the public meeting organized on the occasion of the happy inauguration of Padma Bridge a success.
Mirza Azam said work on the Padma Bridge was to start with World Bank funding. However, the World Bank withdrew from investing in the Padma Bridge, alleging false corruption. Later, Bangabandhu’s daughter boldly announced the construction of her dream Padma Bridge with her own funds and today that dream has come true.
He said a conspiracy has been hatched at home and abroad for the Padma Bridge of dreams. The Prime Minister has told us to be careful. If we are vigilant then no one can do any kind of sabotage.
Juba League Chairman Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash presided over the meeting. The meeting was chaired by Juba League General Secretary Mainul Hossain Khan Nikhil.
