Banani & Gulshan lakes
It is unfortunate that for many years the nation's policy and decision makers were sitting idle and let Banani and Gulshan lakes to be slowly encroached and now the lakes' water has become dirty and polluted with garbage, water hyacinths and sewages.
It is a shame for us that these two lakes cannot be taken care of by the concerned public authorities as well as the private societies.
It is also unbelievable that many of the highest decision makers are ignorant of the exact time of the year for removing the water hyacinths, application of proportionate quantity of liquefied limestone and setting different sizes of strainers on the exit point of all the lakeside drains.
Hopefully the present government would address this issue with a sense of urgency.
