PM orders survey on rail, road bridges

Hasina hails Tigers on win against Afghans
UNB, Dhaka

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday instructed the authorities concerned to conduct surveys on dilapidated rail and road bridges in the country so that necessary repair works could be done before monsoon. The Prime Minister came up with the directive at a meeting of the Executive Committee of National Economic Council (Ecnec), held at the NEC conference room, said Planning Minister MA Mannan while briefing reporters after the meeting.

The directive came a day after the Dhaka-bound Upaban Express from Sylhet derailed at Kulaura in Moulvibazar as a culvert collapsed there, leaving five people dead and some 200 injured. The Prime Minister also congratulated the Bangladesh Cricket Team for its victory against Afghanistan in the ICC World Cup in England.

She praised all the players, including Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim of the Bangladesh Cricket Team.

Sheikh Hasina gave the assurance that her government will not only extend support to cricket but also all the sports, including football, hockey, volleyball and basketball, said minister Mannan.

She asked the ministries of finance and sports to form a special fund to impart training to all the professional athletes and provide financial assistance for them, even after their retirement, to maintain their physical fitness.

The Prime Minister said the government will extend assistance to sportspeople so that they do not suffer in their advanced ages.
