The BNP's mayoral candidate for the Dhaka South City Corporation election, Ishraque Hossain, yesterday released his poll manifesto, with the pledge to turn Dhaka into a modern and world standard city.

If voted, he will take measures to set up farmers' market and night markets in the city to ensure toxic and adulteration-free food.

Ishraque released the poll manifesto at a press conference at the Jatiya Press Club auditorium. BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Dr Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Mirza Abbas, and Goyeshwar Chandra Roy, among others, were present on the occassion.

In his 16-point manifesto, Ishraque made 157 pledges, including taking action on any complaint of the city people within 24 hours.

He said measures would be taken to resolve priority problems within the first 100 days of assuming office.

He said there will be no corruption in the DNCC, as there would be an opportunity to inform the authorities about services and irregularities.  Fighting on the “sheaf of paddy” poll symbol of the BNP, Ishraque focused primarily on healthcare, education, environment, the communication system, and public safety. He iterated his determination to boost the moral values of people in the wake of widespread violence against women and children. Ishraque regretted that the city dwellers face many problems and promised to free the city from pollution, traffic and waterlogging.

In the manifesto, Ishraque highlighted people’s plight in accessing various social services and blamed corruption, social discrimination, and lack of accountability for it.

The BNP candidate said he would work to increase the beauty of the city by ensuring citizen services and protecting the tradition of the capital city of Dhaka. He also said modern technology would be applied to reduce waterlogging. He promised to promote river tourism after getting rid of river pollution.

In the manifesto, Ishraque mentioned that he would ensure corruption-free institutional services, uphold social and humanitarian values, restore democracy and human rights, as well as a drug-free society in combination with tradition and modernization, and make Dhaka free from traffic congestion and pollution, mosquito, and waterlogging to make it a balanced city.

Ishraque promised to launch a senior citizen service and construct a library and museum and involve commoners, using information technology, along with experts, for the development of the city. He also promised to launch one-stop services to provide special services to freedom fighters, old people, disabled, women, children, and under-privileged people.
