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.

Just plain right insane!

Though the work has been continuing for a while as part of a drainage development project, DSCC apparently forgot to put up safety barriers other than a flimsy cautionary tape. Be it day or night, this road is used by pedestrians and vehicles alike. Photo: Rashed Shumon

Nature Quest: The Golden Appeal

Caption

This short, thick-necked bird is commonly known as the Cattle Egret. True to their name, they forage at the feet of grazing cattle, head bobbing with each step, or ride on their backs to pick at ticks. What is most interesting about this stocky white heron is that only during breeding season, the plumes on its head and neck turn golden and are white again once the season has passed. This photo was taken in Amin Bazar area. Photo: Palash Khan
