Ministerial enclave to have multi-storey buildings : Minister

Ministerial enclave to have multi-storey buildings : Minister

In an effort to check land wastage, the government has taken an initiative to build multi-storey buildings after demolishing luxurious two-storey ones allotted to ministers and high government officials, including secretaries, in the city's VIP areas. Under the project, the government has already constructed a 10-storey building at a cost of Tk 53 crore at Minto Road where 10 ministers can be accommodated, Housing and Public Works Minister SM Rezaul Karim has said in an interview.

The Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (Ecnec) approved the project on October 13, 2015 to construct multi-storey buildings in the VIP areas, including Minto Road, Hare Road and Bailey Road. The minister said the duplex houses for ministers and secretaries were built back in 1905 and each of the bungalows was allotted to only one family. "And some of those were built on a piece of around 6-7 acres of land."

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has already directed the authorities concerned to demolish all those two-storey buildings and construct several multi-storey ones for the accommodation of ministers, secretaries, other government officials and even some prominent personalities, he said.

Quoting the Prime Minister, Rezaul Karim said there is no scope of constructing any luxurious building in the capital where an acute accommodation crisis is prevailing. "Not an inch of land will be kept unused." According to sources at the Housing and Public Works Ministry, all buildings on Minto Road will be dismantled to build several 14-storey buildings in the first phase.
