Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives Minister Khandker Mosharraf Hossain says the High Court order staying the Dhaka North City Corporation Polls will not pose any negative impact on the regular activity of DNCC.
The by-polls to Dhaka North City Corporation's mayoral post will be held in the last week of February. Elections to the newly included 36 wards in two Dhaka city corporations are slated to be held with the by-polls, the Election Commission said yesterday.
Are all roads treated equally by them? Why was the initiative to improve roads, footpaths and drains in the upscale tri-state area prioritised by the incumbent Mayor and the DNCC in their first two years in office?
He once again expressed his utter frustration that the city corporation he has been leading for over two years lacks adequate jurisdiction to better serve the city dwellers.
He finds it difficult to develop the city by preparing a master plan because his office has no control over parks, canals, roads and drainage system.
A picture published in this paper yesterday showed a dismal state of a good idea gone wrong. The hundreds of waste bins that were set up all over the city as part of the Clean Dhaka campaign by the DNCC and DSCC mayors for better garbage management in the city was without a doubt a good idea which had the potential to make our city cleaner.
