In a tweet on Sunday, the minister denied rumors on social media that the bridge under construction shows cracks and other signs of degradation.

In the tweet, minister Muizzu said that the photos on social media are of a bridge from a neighboring country and that such misinformation only serves to increase people’s confidence to vote in President Abdulla Yameen for a second term.

The China-Maldives Friendship Bridge is being constructed by China’s CCCC Second Harbor Engineering with over 1,000 workers for USD 200 million.

China has gifted USD 116 million for the bridge’s construction as free aid and USD 72 million as loan. USD 12 million has been taken from the state budget.
