Please have a good look at the picture. It was taken a few days ago at Mohakhali bus stop area. The place is opposite to ICDDR,B's office. Beside the footpath, there stands the Mohakhali Masjid. I think the picture says it all! The pavement or footpath whatever you call it, has been used by the makeshift shops forcing the pedestrians to walk on the roads, which is contributing to traffic jam. On behalf of the Dhaka city dwellers, may I humbly ask how come a footpath of an important point of the city has been encroached by the illegal shops before the eyes of the government authorities?
