Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her younger sister Sheikh Rehana have started for Tungipara by road from her official residence Ganabhaban.

They left Ganabhaban at 7:15am on Friday, according to a message from PM’s press wing.

On their way to Tungipara, they will likely have a brief break at Jajira point's service area of Padma Bridge.

The prime minister opened the country's longest-ever self-financed Padma multi-purpose bridge amid nationwide jubilation on June 25.
