Rajuk has once again given time to different organizations that have offices in the illegally built BGMEA Complex on Hatirjheel, telling them to remove their belongings by 5pm Thursday.

The city development authority, Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk), made the decision following applications of different organizations seeking time to remove their belongings from the building.
