The RCC will arrange a colourful installation ceremony at its green plaza in the afternoon on the occasion with commissioner of Rajshahi division Nur-Ur-Rahman in the chair, said Shah Momin, chief executive officer of RCC.
Talking to journalists in Rajshahi on Thursday, Liton said, ‘I want to restore the previous image of Rajshahi as a green and clean city.’

Liton pledged to expedite industrialisation in the city and its outskirts.
