Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the first phase of metro rail – spanning from Uttara to Agargaon – on December 28.
The minister said this at a preparatory meeting of a sub-committee, formed on the occasion of the 22nd national council of Awami League (AL), in the capital's Dhanmondi Thursday.
"The first phase of metro rail from Diabari to Agargaon will be opened to the public on December 28," Quader, also the general secretary of AL, said.
"Let them (BNP) criticise us. We will respond to their criticisms with our work," he added.
