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.

While the bottles seen in the background are recycled there is little use for the labels and so those are burnt. This creates environment and health risks as the labels contain plastic and some harmful chemicals, which produce noxious fumes when they are burnt. The photo was taken recently. Photo: Rashed Shumon
