Drive to free footpath

Juba League office among structures pulled down

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) yesterday launched an eviction drive in the capital to clear the footpaths occupied illegally, including a portion occupied by Juba League and Swechchhasebak League men.

A mobile court, run by the DNCC, demolished a temporary office of the Juba League from road 11 under sector 3 in Uttara.

Sources in the DNCC also confirmed that a temporary Swechchhasebak League office, set up on a walkway, was also removed during the

drive that began at the Zamzam Tower intersection of Sonargaon Janapath Avenue and worked its way towards Rajlakshmi bus stand.

Around 300 makeshift shops, sheds and installations were also removed during the drive.

DNCC Mayor Atiqul Islam, after witnessing the drive around 1pm, said, “We will continue our drive until the entire Uttara area gets freed from illegal occupation.”

DNCC Chief Revenue Officer Abdul Hamid Mia and Executive Magistrate Sajid Anwar administered the drive, and briefed the media afterwards.

Sajid Anwar said, “So far we have evicted three businesses that obstructed the walkways, and imposed on them Tk 3.5 lakh fine.”

Responding to a query, Abdul Hamid said, “We are evicting illegal establishments on the walkways that bar pedestrians from walking down the pavements, as freeing the footpaths from illegal occupants fall under the jurisdiction of the city corporation.”

DNCC workers removed the illegal structures using bulldozers.
