“Flood-hit people face drinking water crisis” (June 15, 2015)
Everyone should come forward to help the flood victims with food, water, clothing and financial aid.
“Water-logged Dhaka horrifying” (June 13, 2015)
Ministry of Public Works, City Corporation, Roads & Highways department of the 70's and 80's and all people concerned should be held responsible for not planning 50 years ahead and for sitting idle. Those were the days when plenty of land and waterways beside the road were totally empty and planning could have easily been implemented then.
Follow in the footsteps of Singapore, increase tax for private cars to reduce private vehicles on the road. Encourage the people to use public transport.
Dhaka is extremely congested and has already been listed as an unlivable city on the world map. Over the years, for the beautification and the improvement of Dhaka, many theories and ideas have been experimented and huge amounts of money have been spent, but the problems are still unsolved. Honestly, there is no easy solution for this problem. Today or tomorrow, we have to decentralise Dhaka.
No amount of money, resources or master plans will fix this unless the moral character of its inhabitants is changed.
