MAN Siddique, managing director of Dhaka Mass Transit Company Limited, the implementing agency of the project, and other officials were present on the occasion.

"This is a very happy moment for us," MAN Siddique told reporters.

The Tk 22,000 crore project is being implemented to build the 20.10 km elevated metro rail from Uttara to Motijheel.

Authorities have a plan for early commissioning of the total line in December this year.

Planning Minister MA Mannan recently said the first phase -- Uttara to Agargaon -- of metro rail is likely to be operational in December this year.

Asked whether they would start operation of the first phase in December, MAN Siddique said they will inform the plan after the metro rail reaches Bangladesh, expectedly in April.
