It appears the evacuation notice handed out to 41 risky buildings by the Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk) on March 13 was not well-thought-out.
If government officials were held responsible and accountable for every incident, things would have been corrected much earlier.
Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha still doesn’t know whether the seven-storey building in which an explosion on Tuesday claimed 22 lives was constructed as per the approved design.
The loss of 22 lives in Tuesday’s explosion is the result of sheer greed and negligence of the building owners, police said
"The building is old, so is its file which has been maintained manually [only files that were approved by Rajuk after May 2019 are digitised]. On top of that yesterday was a holiday. That's why it is taking time"
There’s no way to call this a “people’s DAP.” It does mention some goals, but without sketching out a plan to achieve them.
DAP depicts a vision, but whose vision that is and how it came to be are not clear.
The regulations that DAP recommends can initiate a spree of development in the floodplains and agricultural lands surrounding central Dhaka, posing a serious threat of urban flooding.
