Padma Bridge opening: Huge crowds at rally venue

Around 10 lakh people have arrived at Kathalbari Ferry Ghat in Madaripur to join the mammoth rally scheduled to be held today (June 25, 2022) on the occasion of Padma Bridge opening.

The rally will begin at 12:00 pm.

People from all walks of life and leaders of Awami League and its associate bodies thronged the rally venue since 6am, boarding buses, launches, boats, battery-run three wheelers and other modes of transport.

The gathering wore a festive look as people from different parts of the country, especially from the southern districts, started crowding the venue with colourful banners, festoons and AL’s election symbol “boat”.

Hamidul Haque, a freedom fighter of Khulna’s Paikgachha, said, “He left his house for joining the rally on Friday afternoon and reached the Kathalbari Ferry Ghat in Madaripur. I had to undergo hardship to reach the spot but this hardship is of much delight.”
