DSCC to remove illegal structures from Beribadh, recover canal
Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) will carry out an eviction drive in pases to recover the Nandipara Trimohoni canal in the capital on February 6.
Besides, the DSCC also plans to conduct eviction drives on both sides of Beribadh (embankment) on Babubazar to Rayerbazaar Sikder Medical College to remove illegal structures on February 9, DSCC Mayor Sayeed Khokon announced at Nagar Bhaban yesterday.
The decision was taken at a joint meeting attended by Dhaka District Administration, Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) and other representatives concerned, he said.
Briefing reporters, the DSCC mayor said Nandipara Trimohoni canal will be recovered as part of the prime minister's order to recover canals within this dry season.
Replying to a question, he said illegally constructed BGMEA Bhaban in Hatirjheel will also be demolished soon as there is no basis for it following High Court's order. People's sufferings have increased due to water logging which has been caused by illegal grabbing of the city's canals.
