The minister said that though work of maintaining city’s drainage system was handed over to two city corporations by Dhaka WASA, but the ministry will lay out a work plan for the two city corporations next week, he said.

‘In line with the plan of the two mayors, a new work plan will be chalked out by the ministry. Everything will be done to make Dhaka a modern and liveable city,’ the minister added.

Regarding the piling of waste in Aminbazar, he said that he started working on the waste management of the capital soon after taking charge as a minister.

Plans have been taken to set up an incineration plant at Aminbazar to generate electricity from waste and the process will start soon. He said that incineration plants will be set up in all city corporations and districts.
