UNB, Dhaka :

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate Padma Bridge on June 25, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said.

"The bridge will be named after the river Padma only and not after anyone in the Bangabandhu family. Hasina will inaugurate the bridge at 10am on June 25," he told reporters after a meeting with the PM at Ganobhaban on Tuesday.
