'Red card' to mayors for failing to control mosquitoes
Netizens disgruntled by government handling of the chikungunya outbreak in Dhaka have decided to organise a protest in Shahbagh against both mayors of Dhaka city corporations. In the campaign, protest organisers called for people of the city to band together and show the mayors "the red card." On the Facebook page dedicated to the protest, the description states that "if the mosquitos cannot be killed, then the city is in danger of a dengue epidemic." The description also voiced displeasure at the recent flooding throughout the city "after just a little rain." The protest is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 15, from 4pm to 7pm.
