This bridge will revolutionise the transportation and communication system and economy with the country’s south-western region. The construction of the Padma Bridge is a significant accomplishment of  Bangladesh. Our Padma bridge, our source of pride.”

Jaya Ahsan, one of the most popular actresses in both Bangladesh and West Bengal, wrote  “There were all kinds of speculations that such a big project can be built with our own money, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina went ahead almost alone with this unwavering confidence, and she made the impossible into possible. The Padma Bridge is probably her greatest contribution to the people and this bridge will surely keep her memory alive.”

Silver screen superstar Omar Sani wrote on his Facebook, “My ancestral home is in Barisal’s Gournadi Union and although I was born in Kaliganj, Jinjira in the Dhaka division, my father-in-law’s house is in Satkhira, Khulna. Alhamdulillah, Padma Bridge, is indeed our great pride. Our first achievement is our independence and our second achievement is Padma Bridge.”

“This thrill is incomparable,” stated popular music composer Prince Mahmud. “This cannot be put into words. This sentiment is not an immediate commotion. This resonance will be felt by those who have come from the other side of the Padma. Life has become easier and simpler, and I can now travel home anytime I wish.”

Anjana Rahman, another popular actress representing the silver screen, said, “The Padma Bridge is our pride. The hopes and aspirations of 170 million Bengali-speaking people are fulfilled today. Without the grace of the World Bank, we have funded on our own to build the Padma Bridge. Salute to you, Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina - the embodiment of all the hopes and aspirations of the entire Bengali nation, the daughter of democracy.”

Acclaimed actor-singer Chanchal Chowdhury wrote, “Today (on Sunday) is the happiest day of Bangladesh, the day of pride. Long live Sheikh Hasina, for constructing the bridge of joy. “Padma Bridge,” is our pride.”
