Secretaries to meet on Padma River bank

Update : 15 Oct 2015, 08:08 PM

In a one-of-a-kind event, the government secretaries will have a meeting tomorrow at a unique venue – on the bank of the Padma River.

Bridges Division Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam confirmed it yesterday.

“All government secretaries will come together on the bank of the Padma on Saturday morning for a meeting, following which they will visit the Padma Bridge project,” he said.

The secretary meeting is usually held at the Cabinet Division in the Secretariat. This is first time that it will take place outside of the secretariat, and the capital.

Earlier, the BNP-led coalition government had attempted to hold a meeting of secretaries in Chittagong, but it eventually did not happen.

“We were invited by the Bridges Division to visit the Padma Bridge project. So we decided to have the meeting near the river,” said Cabinet Secretary M Musharraf Hussain Bhuiyan.

“If the meeting is held at Padma, the [project] officials will work sincerely,” he added.

According to the official notice, the secretaries will gather at the state guest house Jamuna on early Saturday morning, from where they will go to Padma Bridge project by bus. They will return the same day.
