Coming down heavily on Khaleda Zia for her comments about the Padma Bridge construction, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said making this nonsense remarks, the BNP leader has understood that she has no ability to build such a bridge.
"Any person who has a little bit sense and who has some knowledge in his or her head must not utter those words. Making this nonsense remarks, Khaleda Zia has understood that she has no ability to construct such a bridge," she said.
Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, was addressing a function at her official residence Ganabhaban residence when the leaders and workers of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) came to meet her marking the 70th founding anniversary of the organisation, reports BSS.
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia at a discussion at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) on Tuesday said that the under construction multipurpose Padma Bridge is risky to get on as it is being constructed of patchwork.
"The Padma Bridge won't be constructed during the Awami League's rule. Even, if they somehow construct the bridge, please don't get on it as there'll be huge risk," Khaleda told the discussion.
The prime minister said that if Khaleda Zia has some knowledge in her head she might know how a bridge is constructed.
"Some knowledge which Khaleda Zia has are used for making money through embezzling and stealing, burning and killing people, and she can only do these evil works," she said.
BCL President Saifur Rahman Sohag and General Secretary SM Zakir Hossain also spoke at the function held at the west lawn of Ganabhaban, while AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader was present on the dais.
At the outset of the function, the BCL leaders greeted the prime minister by presenting flower bouquets.
