Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam said, works will start within three days to remove water-logging. I have delivered order already. We will start our works within two to three days to remove water-logging. We will clean those drains where water is not flowing.
He said these at a cleanliness campaign program in East West University at Aftab Nagar in the capital on Tuesday.
The Mayor said, people are suffering due to water-logging. Who will work or not to remove water-logging, from where the budget will come, I will not consider those. I will try my best to remove water-logging.
He said, canals are filled up, so that roads are being inundated within a short spell of rain. To recover those we will work on behalf of City Corporation. As well as I would request WASA so that they work to reduce sufferings of people.
Atiqul Islam said, general people have to be conscious. People on their way are throwing garbage on the roads. Those dirty materials go to the drains and hinder the water flow. When we go abroad we do not left dirty materials on roads. Obey signals on roads. But why we will not follow the rules in the country while crossing roads? Why we will drop dirty materials here and there? If we keep our city clean like our own home from our position then the next generation will get a beautiful city.
