Social Welfare Minister Syed Mohsin Ali has kept his word to rebuild a portion of Moulvibazar Stadium's boundary wall that was demolished for wedding ceremony of his daughter.
The wedding ceremony of the minister's second daughter Syeda Sanjida Sharmin was held at the stadium at Raghunathpur on Thursday. Over 20,000 guests attended the ceremony. More than 20 feet of the north wall between the stadium and Water Development Board was razed to ensure cars of the guests have easy access to the ceremony venue.
Five canopies were erected on the ground. One was for the groom's relatives and guests, one for the bride and women, another for guests coming in from seven Upazilas, one more for Hindu guests and another for 'miscellaneous guests.'

Ali had earlier faced criticism for smoking at a programme attended by children and again for threatening journalists. The minister told journalists on Wednesday, "We took permission for making arrangement for the wedding?.     ?
