All election camps to be removed soon: Sayeed Khokon

Dhaka South City Corporation mayor Sayeed Khokon today said all the temporary election camps set up during the 11th national polls will be removed within the quickest possible time.

The Mayor said this while inaugurating removal work of makeshift election camps at Segunbagicha in the city on Saturday.

Sayeed Khokon said that earlier instruction was given to remove all election-related posters, banners, and other campaign materials within next 48 hours. Most of them were removed by this time while some are still visible in differed areas of the city, he said.

"If you see any poster, banner or festoon on flyover or in any other place then you will inform us to keep the city clean," Khokon said.

"We want to remove all the temporary election camps so that people can walk freely on pavements and we can keep our city clean," he added.

Photo of the day


LIFE GOES ON BETWEEN HOPE AND DESPAIR… With a child in her lap and another sleeping in a basket covered by an umbrella as a protection from sweltering heat, Jobeda sets up her shop on a road in Karwan Bazar. Every morning, the resolute mother buys vegetables from the kitchen market and sells those at the very spot along with other women. She said she has been doing this for a while to support her five-member family as her day-labourer husband’s income is not enough. She earns around Tk 400-500 a day. The photo was taken yesterday afternoon.Photo: Palash Khan
