HM Ershad, former president and current member of parliament, yesterday emphasised the dire need for beautification and maintenance of the Dhaka city.
He also stressed the need for decentralising this city as it is burdened with overpopulation.
He made the remarks while addressing the inaugural ceremony of the renovated Baridhara Lakeside Park in the capital.
Ershad said, if he wins the next election, he will divide the whole country into seven provinces with provincial governments.
Mashrur Arefin, deputy managing director of City Bank, said the renovation of Baridhara Lakeside Park took 10 months to complete, with the work beginning in 2011 with Rajuk's permission.
City Bank financed the Tk 1.7 crore renovation project while Baridhara Society supervised it and Spotlight, an event management firm, carried out the year-long work, he said.
The renovation works included addition of walk ways, sitting spaces, toilets within park area and jet fountains on the lake, he added.
The ceremony concluded with fireworks and a presentation showing the park before and after the renovation.
