Prof Md Mizanur Rahman, director of Directorate of Students’ Welfare (DSW) of the BUET, told Prothom Alo on Thursday, "The decision (to suspend classes on the day of Padma Bridge inaguration) has been taken as the students on 18 June submitted an application to me in this regard."
He said the administrative activities would continue on that day.
The hall authorities have been directed to show the inaugural ceremony on projectors if the students make such requests, Mizanur Rahman added.
The government has taken massive preparation ahead of the inaugural ceremony of the bridge. The Bangladesh Bridge Authority (BBA) has already formed 18 preparatory committees and sub-committees to celebrate the completion of the mega project.
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina will formally inaugurate the much-awaited Padma Bridge on 25 June.
