Keep public roads free: Annisul

Keep public roads free: Annisul

Numerous private organizations have occupied roads in the capital with 'no parking' sign. The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Annisul Huq vented anger on those groups and said that he would not tolerate such activities occupying the road for commoners. Spelling warning, the mayor said: "I don't want to see your no parking signs. Those will be removed within a week. Roads for public must be reclaimed."

The mayor made the declaration yesterday while addressing a workshop as the chief guest at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). Department of Urban and Regional Planning Professor Dr Afsana Haque presided over the program while Prof Dr Golam Rahman was present as special guest. "Pedestrians could not walk on the footpaths of the diplomatic zone previously. We have freed the walkways and now people are easily moving there," the mayor said. Expressing anger, he said: "I saw some G-4 security group set up no parking sign on the road. Is it their road?"

Addressing the security farms both national and international, Annisul said: "Just one week turn. Whoever you are, leave the road." Sharing his experience, Annisul said: "I found a number of no parking sign at Saudi Embassy. However, they don't do it in their country." "Is it legal for them to occupy public road in Bangladesh? It's not. We must reclaim the walkways," he concluded.
