Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that none can stop development spree of the country.

“We are marching ahead to fulfill our pledges to the grassroots people to turn Bangladesh into a developed and prosperous country as envisioned by the Father of the Nation”, the prime minister said this while inaugurating some uplift projects on Wednesday.

The prime minister inaugurated the uplift projects- the newly-constructed pedestrian underpass adjoining Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment School and College on Dhaka-Airport Highway, Sylhet Town Bypass-Garrison Link 4 Highway, Balukhali (Cox's Bazar)-Ghundhum (Bandarban) Boundary Link Road, and a 500 metre bridge on the Chengi river at Naniarchar in Rangamati district under the Roads and Highways Department.

Joining virtually from her official Ganobhaban residence, she said the development schemes would pave the way of boosting trade and business and make people's communication easy alongside contributing to decrease the nagging traffic snarl and road accidents.

The pedestrian underpass was constructed on the Dhaka-Airport Highway as part of the prime minister's pledge following the deaths of two school students in a road accident near Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment School and College on July 29 in 2018.

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni, local public representatives, high civil and military officials were connected to the programme from the
respective sites.

Chief of Army Staff General S M Shafiuddin Ahmed spoke on the occasion.

PM's Principal Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus moderated the function while Road Transport and Highways Division Secretary Md. Nazrul Islam gave a brief description about the four development projects.
