Bridge over Panguchi

A great tragedy took place in the Panguchi River at Morelgonj on March 28. The waves created by a navy gunboat overturned a trawler overcrowded with people that was crossing the river. Only 14 dead bodies were found and many others remain undiscovered.
We, the people of Morelgonj and Sharonkhola, have been demanding a bridge to be built over the Panguchi. We even formed a human chain of civilians from the two upazilas on Pahela Baishakh. Sharonkhola, known for its natural beauty, is very close to the Sundarbans. A bridge would also allow tourists to go to the Sundarbans through this area.
We hope that our honourable Prime Minister will take necessary steps to meet our demand.
