Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday (June 15) asked all security forces including the armed forces to remain alert, saying the people who opposed Padma Bridge construction are out to do something destructive, so the bridge’s grand opening couldn’t take place on June 25.
“We have constructed the Padma Bridge taking a huge challenge. The people who opposed it have a target. We have got some information that such an incident can be made that we can’t open the bridge on June 25 next. But we don’t know what they will do exactly,” she said.
She said this while addressing the 36th founding anniversary function of the elite Special Security Force (SSF) at Shapla Hall, Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) here.
The prime minister asked the chiefs of the three services and police, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB), Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) and Ansar personnel who were present in the programme to stay alert in safeguarding the key point installations such as the Rooppur Power Plant, metro rail and tunnel under the Karnaphuli River.
She said, “I would like to tell you all who are present here to stay alert”.
