High School premises marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“We’re constructing secondary transfer stations (STSs) in each ward and

ensuring waste removal management from there… And we are controlling

mosquitoes, constructing centers for social events in every ward,” the mayor


“We’ve already taken control over the canals from the Dhaka Water Supply

and Sewerage Authority and removed 200,000 tonnes of waste silt from the

canals and box culverts while cleaning them. As a result, flowing of water in

the canals will be easier,” he continued.

“Our only goal is to realize the dream of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur

Rahman for building the country as “Sonar Bangla” and our beloved leader

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working towards that goal,” said Taposh.

“Under her leadership, in just 12 years, we have achieved the capacity to

build the Padma Bridge, become self-sufficient in power generation, the world

is looking at us with dignity, we have overcome all obstacles and set an

example of development,” he further mentioned.

councilors of ward-37 and women councilors of reserved seats and councilors

of wards 41 and 44, local ward Awami League, Juba League and Chhatra League

leaders were present on the occasion.
