Local donations for Padma bridge

The World Bank (WB) has given tacit approval to resume its 1.2 billion dollar loan to the government for constructing the Padma bridge which was previously postponed because of the alleged corruption in the project. After the postponement, the government sought donation from public. In response, donation was made to more than one designated bank accounts. Since the WB has revived the funding, what will happen to the raised fund? This fund should be handled transparently and the general mass should be informed of the transactions.

For whom the bell tolls? It appears that another scam door has been opened to defraud the well intentioned people. Keep away from the scandalised project till it gets certification from the World Bank. Meanwhile, we urge that the money so far deposited be refunded, and accounts suspended indefinitely.
