Wasa pipelines

Wasa pipelines for supplying water to households have been set up through a sewage drain, with a possibility of raw sewage getting into the pipes, if leaked. Besides, the sewer is also blocked due to the pipes and garbage. The photo was taken from Muradpur area in Kadamtoli recently. Photo: Anisur Rahman

name plaque

The name plaque of Moghbazar-Mouchak flyover has become a destination for self-promotion. Be it for promoting movies, political agendas or campaigning for election to a school’s governing body, the entire wall is covered with these eyesores. Even the name of the prime minister, who inaugurated the flyover, is almost illegible while garbage remains accumulated on the median. The photo was taken in the capital’s Shantinagar intersection yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan
