Dhaka South City Corporation mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh on Wednesday said that city people were getting the benefit of drainage management improvement by the city corporation.
‘People are getting better benefits but not the complete. As soon as we can implement our long-term plan, people will get full comfort,’ Taposh said while addressing reporters after inaugurating Sheheed Seikh Rasel Park at Jatrabari.
The mayor said that DSCC had taken a massive plan in three levels—short term, mid-term and long-term— to address waterlogging.
DSCC was doing all short term activities including cleaning the drainage and connecting them to canals and then river to drain out the rain water.
‘DSCC has started a Tk 103 crore development programme to do mid-term development activities including infrastructure development and expansion of water carrying bodies,’ he said adding the DSCC also took a master plan for Dhaka too.
Taposh claimed that in short-term plan of action, city people get a big relief while mid and long term plan would give people a complete relief.
DSCC councillors, local Awami League leaders and top officials of DSCC among others were with him during visit.
