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.

The boy’s grandfather said he tied the hands to keep him in “control” while the parents, who live on the street, were away for work. The sad truth is, the sight of children being abused on the streets is not too rare. Photo: Prabir Das

motorcycles seized


Motorcycles seized by DB police gather dust and rust under the Moghbazar Flyover in the capital. The law enforcers have kept around 200 such vehicles there this way, mainly due to a lack of space. In many countries such vehicles are impounded properly in a shaded car park and owners collect them following payment of fines or court orders. Photo: Anisur Rahman

Belching out death


This is how we made our cities some of the most polluted ones in the world. A steel rerolling mill in the residential area of Munshikhola in Pagla of Narayanganj is emitting toxic gas but the authorities seem to have turned a blind eye to the assault on the air we breathe. People living in the area face severe problems every day due to the fumes. The whole area seems foggy in the morning but it is actually smog. Air pollution is considered one of the leading causes of death in Bangladesh and one that is also considered avoidable through targeted policy measures. Photo: Palash Khan
