Dhaka south city mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh on Monday warned the city corporation officials against corruption and negligence in duty.

Earlier on May 17, he dismissed two officers of the city corporation for their reported involvement in corruption.

While presiding over the corporation’s mosquito control programme meeting at the corporation head office on Monday, Taposh said that he would visit corporation offices anytime and if anybody was found absent, he would take action against him or her.

He also said that negligence in implementing work-plans for controlling the mosquito menace would not be tolerated.

DSCC chief executive officer Shah Md Emdadul Haque, chief health officer Sharif Ahmed, chief waste management officer Badrul Amin, secretary Akramuzzaman, among others were present at the meeting.

The mayor announced formation of a committee with DSCC health officer Mustafizur Rahman as the head and comprising executive officers of 10 city zones for cleaning water bodies, operating mobile courts at houses and offices, and spreading larvicides and insect killers.

The councillors will advise the committee while the residents will be asked to fill in online applications for taking city corporation’s help in spreading pesticides.

Taposh said that the corporation would not depend or wait for other agencies to give services to city dwellers.

The meeting also decided to release tilapia fish and ducks to keep the water bodies clean.
