The premier said: “We have been able to construct the bridge dismantling network of conspiracies. It is not brick, steel and concrete. It is our pride. It is associated with our determination, bravery and challenge. Construction was delayed due to conspiracies. The 42 spans of the bridge bear testimony of the glory of Bengali Nation."
