Local Government Minister Md. Tazul Islam has said, Dhaka is a populous city. To give it the new shape a new city will be built centering the Turag river and old Dhaka will be reconstructed. Steps are underway to construct a modern and eye catching city centering the Turag river. If it is done then countrymen need not to go abroad and foreigners will come to visit Dhaka.
The minister said this at the inauguration program of ‘Sobar Dhaka App’ organized by Dhaka North City Corporation on the occasion of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s home coming day at Krishibid Institute in the capital on Sunday.
Tazul Islam said, a dream Dhaka city will be constructed facing all the hurdles and challenges to present a clean and livable Dhaka for the city dwellers by evicting the illegal grabbers from all the canals and by cleaning those.
He said, if Hatirjheel waterways can be extended up to Banani and United Hospital and others canals can be connected to each other then Dhaka will be more eye catching city than other cities of the world. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is dreaming of such a city. To fulfill that dream we are working tirelessly.
The local government minister said, to ensure service for the city dwellers both the city corporations were allocated adequate money and more will be allocated in future.
He said, the country has turned into a role model of development as Awami League led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is in power. Bangladesh has gained enormous success in education, health, economic, social and other indexes.
