Cheerful PM’s photo with Joy, Putul from Padma Bridge takes netizens by storm

A photo with smiling faces of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, her son Sajeeb Wazed Joy and Saima Wazed Putul taken on the Padma Bridge went viral on social media on Monday.

“Bangabandhu family on the Padma Bridge,” Mamun Al Mahtab mentioned while sharing the photo from his verified Facebook account. PM's daughter Putul took the selfie.

“What better picture than this! Sajeeb Wazed Joy with his mother Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and sister Saima Wazed Putul on the dream Padma Bridge,” wrote a Facebook user.

Silvia Parven Lenny while sharing the photo from her Facebook account wrote, “What a beautiful photo?”

Sharing the photo, Adnan Sharif wrote, “Right now, the most loveable picture of Bangladesh.”

“The image of a happy and prosperous Bangladesh. May the future of Bangladesh be filled with the illusion of this happiness,” one of the Facebook users wrote while sharing the photo.

Joy, also Prime Minister’s ICT Affairs Adviser, shared the photo from his verified Facebook account writing “Padma Bridge.”

He, earlier, said Padma Bridge is a symbol of pride and dignity of Bangladesh. "Padma Bridge is not just an engineering masterpiece but a symbol of pride and dignity of Bangladesh as well. All the people of this country equally share this glory," he said recently.

Bangladesh witnessed a historic moment on June 25 with the inauguration of Padma Bridge demonstrating to the world what this country can do on its own, proving the skeptics wrong amid the World Bank’s scrapping of committed loans.

PM Hasina, who took up the challenge to go ahead with self-financing the bridge of national pride, formally opened the bridge, a milestone on the connectivity front, nationally and regionally.

Hasina on Monday reached her ancestral home at Tungipara in Gopalganj on her first visit by the Padma Bridge she inaugurated last month.

On arrival she, along with her son and daughter, offered prayer at the mazar of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Accompanied by her son Sajeed Wazed Joy and daughter Saima Wazed, the premier offered fateha and raised hands in prayer seeking eternal peace of departed souls of  Bangabandhu and other martyrs of August 15, 1975 massacre.

Prayers were also offered seeking divine blessings for good health and long life of Sheikh Hasina and their family members as well as continued peace, progress and prosperity of the country.
