Update : 23 Dec 2015, 07:52 PM

The year 2016 will be the year when Dhaka city will be turned into a clean, beautiful and colourful city, said Dhaka South City Corporation Mayor Mohammad Sayeed Khokon.

He announced his office’s year-round cleanliness programme during a press conference at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel in the capital yesterday.

“Our aim is not to reform Dhaka to be a clean city overnight. We want to go step by step towards our goal. That is why we have taken up the cleanliness programme in the upcoming New Year,” he said.

The mayor further said all the occupied roads and footpaths in the capital will be freed from occupiers, and the waste management system, public toilets, roads, footpaths and street lamps will be repaired and developed.

“Beautification programme will be undertaken for the city’s intersections, foot overbridges and open spaces,” he added.

Khokon also said the DSCC would organise yoga programmes for the city dwellers, and urged all to participate in the yoga sessions.

The press conference was also attended by the DSCC’s high officials and councillors, among others.
