Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the people affected by the World Bank’s decision on cancelling finance for the Padma Bridge project and the subsequent lawsuit in Canadian Court would file cases against the bank.

“The affected people will certainly file cases against the World Bank as they [WB] tried to involve them in false cases,” the premier said in response to the demand of the expatriate leaders and workers of European Awami League in Munich on Friday.

“We are grateful to the Almighty as the people affected by the World Bank’s decision have finally got justice after a long suffering. They tried to implicate my son and daughter, sister, my cabinet members, advisers and secretaries with fictitious allegations,” she said.

“However, I will say that a person can face any difficult situation if he/she remains in the path of truth and honesty,” the premier said adding, “the verdict of the Canadian court went in our favour as all members of my family and I myself were in the path of truth and honesty.”

Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali, president and general secretary of European Awami League Anil Dasgupta and MA Gani Chowdhry, president of German Awami League Bashirul Alam Sabu, EU Awami League leaders Idris Farazi, Hasan Iqbal and Nurul Islam were present among others at the programme.
