Residents of New Eskaton and Gaus Nagar have submitted a petition to Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC), seeking the withdrawal of permission for allotting a commercial space.

The residents of Moghbazar ward 35 area submitted the petition, signed by a person named Sahabuddin Ahmed, to DNCC Mayor Atiqul Islam on Wednesday.

The petition read: “We, the residents of New Eskaton and Gaus Nagar, prioritize preserving peace, discipline, and security in this area. Around 700 families live in this neighborhood.

“It has come to our attention that a firm provided false information to the government, and was allotted a building in New Eskaton. We strongly feel that this commercial firm will disrupt this residential area.”

The petition concluded by stating: “We, residents hereby urge the honourable mayor to cancel the allotment to the above-mentioned commercial firm and preserve the integrity of this residential area.”
