Chattogram Bureau :
Faraz Karim Chowdhury ,son of  the lawmaker of Raozan constituency ABM Fazle Karim Chowdhury  demanded reconstruction of old Kalurghat Bridge  famous  gateway of South Chattogram and Bandarban Hill d istrict  on river Karnaphuly.
 He expressed  the demand through    face book live . Faraz Karim Chowdhury appeared in face  book live on Saturday morning  with the demand  of risky Kalurghat bridge. He said no  question of North, south, mohanagar  Chattogram rather we are all Chittagonians  and we demand total development of greater Chattogram.
He also said in case of development a ctivities , we are all united and no division within us. Faraz Karim depicted a picture of Kalurghat bridge in face book live that  this bridge was built during British regime in 1930  over Karnaphuli river . Passenger and goods   trains , passenger buses and heavy transports are  running over the bridge  everday . Despite capacity of  goods transports of 5 tons each but  heavy goods laden transports with 10 tons or more are  regularly crossing the bridge from both sides. Frequently  incidents are occurring over the bridge  and hence Railway authority declared the bridge risky in 2001  .
As a result any kind of fatal accident may occur in the bridge at any moment. Millions of  people irrespective of male, female, juveniles, elderly are suffering  centring the  tottering bridge. Before construction of  karnaphuli Shah Amanat Bridge, Kalurghat railway bridge was the only  gateway of Boalkhali, Anowara, Banskhali, Satkania, Bandarban  and coxsbazar  amd  the commuters,  had no alternatives than Kalurghat bridge. Presently about 50 lakh people are residing  in these   great region  and it was a  heartfelt demand of us to construct a new Kalurghat bridge beside the  tottering railway bridge over Karnaphuli river. He  further  said in face book live thst being a son of Raozan , I can not  avoid the demand of  new  Kalurghat bridge as son  of Chattogram  and we are looking towards  govt's  mercy .
As a son of a  people's representative, it is my prime duty to  do something for the people of this r egion. After construction of new Kalurghat bridge, overall development of  industry, trade, communication uplift, medical sector and education  will be  developed to the maximum extents, he added .  
Mentionable that  local legislator of Boalkhali  Moinuddin Khan Badal once  threatened   to resign from Sangsad  if the  Kalurghat bridge is not constructed  immediately.
