Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the Padma Bridge is not a structure of brick, stone and concrete but it is symbol dignity, pride and bravery of the Nation.
She made the remarks at her speech at the inauguration of the much-dreamed Padma Bridge Saturday morning.
“We have been able to construct the bridge dismantling network of conspiracies. It is not brick, steel and concrete. It is our pride. It is associated with our determination, bravery and challenge. Construction was delayed due to conspiracies. The 42 spans of the bridge bear testimony of the glory of Bengali Nation. Historically, we do not bow down to anybody. Bangabandhu standing on the gallows chanted the song of independence of Bangladesh.”
