President Abdul Hamid has said that the construction of the much-hyped Padma Bridge will be completed by July 2022.

He came up with the disclosure while addressing the winter session of the National Parliament on Monday (January 18).

The first session of 2021 started with speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair at 4:00 pm.

The President said, “The 6.15 km of the main infrastructure of Padma Bridge has already been visible. Construction of bridge will be completed by July 2022. This will create an integrated communication system with the southern part of the country and other regions.”

He further said, “Today we are on the threshold of the golden jubilee of independence. We have to move forward on the path of peace, democracy, development and prosperity. This year, as a middle-income country, we will celebrate the golden jubilee of independence. However, our goal is to be initiated as a developed and prosperous country in 2041. I firmly believe that under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, we will be able to build a welfare, developed and prosperous Bangladesh through the full participation of the people.”
