We have been listening the news of Padma Bridge construction from our communications minister for last one and half year .Thanks to the government that World Bank, ADB, Japan and Islamic Development Bank has confirmed their commitments of funding the mega project.Some donors have already released funds to expedite the construction of this mega project.
According to Ministry of Communication last year the construction work of this mega project was scheduled to start in February later on again the Communication Minister informed that it will start in March. Of late it is heard from the Minister that it would start in July 2011. Even the Finance Ministry has assured in last December that the funding of the project by World Bank has been cleared and now what impediments are there to start the construction of the bridge? I would request our communication minister to let us know the exact time when actually you can start the construction work of Padma Bridge? I believe the minister will clear all doubts and fear from our minds.
