Padma Bridge project: Construction begins by Oct 25: Obaidul

Communications Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday categorically said construction work of the much-talked-about Padma Bridge would begin by October 25.

The communications minister came up with the disclosure while visiting Gorai-Shakhipur road in the district on Saturday.

He said, “If World Bank disagrees to provide fund by January, it will be clear in February about who is funding the project.”

The ruling Awami League lawmaker said, “The government is aimed at constructing the bridge, but due to some technical reasons we can’t disclose about alternative funding.”

Obaildul also urged the main opposition BNP to join next parliament
