Felt extremely dejected and despondent at the disgraceful conditions prevailing at Gazipur Chowrasta. The Muktijoddha Monument a prominent landmark in the area, built to symbolise the supreme sacrifices of the greatest sons of the soil is lying in utter neglect. It is a matter of shame and disgrace that our brave sons are not being honoured. The entire roundabout appeared extremely chaotic with buses, maxis, CNGs and rickshaws parked haphazardly. Garbage has not been removed for months. Posters of school coaching, latest movie release, broadband are pasted on the monument itself. Vendors sell peanuts, jhaal moori and chatpati and serve juice extracted from sugarcane and carrots. People gossip lazily and throw all types of litters. The roundabout is devoid of any ornamental garden. After dusk, the entire area is shrouded in dark as there are no overhead lights. Such is our respect for the brave sons of the soil! I find it extremely audacious on the part of the Gazipur administration to show disrespect to the Muktijoddhas.
I would like to draw the attention of the Sector Commanders Forum to this matter.
With the advent of the month of December, may I request the Gazipur administration to take all necessary steps to beautify the Chowrasta and uphold the sanctity of the monument of pride.
