Remove dustbin from Jibanananda Das' home entrance

Demand Barisal city residents on poet's 117th birthday

The dustbin placed in front of the ancestral house of Jibanananda Das by Barisal City Corporation has to be removed, demanded dwellers at a discussion, marking the poet's 117th birthday yesterday.

They placed wreaths at Jibanananda's grave and held a poem recitation programme at his house “Dhanshiri”.

They also demanded implementation of the Dhanshiri River Eco Park project and excavation of the river, establishing museums, memorials and sculptures of the poet at places connected to his life.

Dipak Lal Mridha, sanitation officer of BCC, said they were looking for another place to relocate the dustbin.

Jibanananda died on October 22, 1954 in Kolkata.
