DCC administrators pledge quality services
The administrators of newly formed Dhaka south and north city corporations yesterday spoke of ensuring quality service in their areas.
Khalilur Rahman, administrator of Dhaka South City Corporation, said he would make information and some services available on the website. He made the remark in a farewell programme of the chief executive officer of the now defunct Dhaka City Corporation at Nagar Bhaban.
Khalil took charge on December 5 while Khorshed Alam, administrator of the north city corporation, took over yesterday.
Abul Klam Azad, DCC chief executive officer, was replaced by two chief executive officers of the new city corporations.
Sultanul Islam, joint secretary of the information ministry, joined as chief executive officer of the south city corporation and Nazrul Islam, director general of the National Academy for Primary Education, of the north city corporation.
Khalil said he would not make any long-term plan since he had not been voted in. Rather, he would go for a short-term plan to ensure quality service.
The population in the south is much higher than that in the north whereas the north has a larger area than the south. Therefore, the two administrators will have separate issues to deal with and also have to adopt different policies to solve those.
Khorshed who also attended the farewell programme with the chief executive officer said he would try to ensure quality service until the election of the north city corporation.
Previous DCC mayor house in the city's Gulshan has been made the north city corporation office but due to a lack of space, the staff will also use Banani Community Centre as their work place, said Khorshed.
About the manpower shortage in his corporation, he said the ministry concerned had already taken some steps in this regard.
Meanwhile, the administrator of the south city corporation held an orientation programme with all high officials of the now defunct DCC in the morning.
