A book titled ‘Amader Orthe Amader Padma Setu’ (Our Padma Bridge With Our Own Fund) edited by foreign minister Dr AK Abdul Momen was unveiled on Tuesday, reports BSS.

The foreign minister dedicated the book to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her firm decision to build the bridge with the country’s own finances, wiping off all conspiracies in home and abroad.

The book is a compilation of two speeches of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina marking the inauguration of the Padma Bridge, 51 essays written by renowned personalities, 10 poetry and three rhymes on the bridge. 

Presided over by the Foreign Minister, the book-unveil ceremony was addressed as the chief guest by Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury, Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shariar Alam and Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam at the foreign service academy in the capital.
