Bridge on Bangshai river demanded

Several hundred villagers yesterday formed a human chain in Dariapur union of Sakhipur upazila, demanding a bridge on Bangshai river.

A good number of students and teachers from different educational institutions in Dariapur and its neighbouring villages took part in the two-hour-long programme in Boroitala Ghatpar area.

Urging authorities concerned to take immediate steps to construct a bridge on the river, speakers at the human chain said a bridge in Boroitala Ghatpar area is long overdue as thousands of villagers including students from around 12 villages of the union have been putting their lives in danger every day while crossing the river on boats.

Ansar Ali Asif, chairman of Dariapur Union Parishad; SM Saiful Islam Shamim, former chairman of the union parishad; and Abdul Aziz, headteacher of Shahab Uddin High School; also spoke among others during the programme.
