The building site was under supervision of the consulting firm and the contractor, CPD says
The Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) says the under-construction building site of the organization where the larvae of Aedes mosquitoes were detected by Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC), has not been under its direct supervision for the past three years.
The building site was under supervision of the consulting firm and the contractor, CPD said on Monday. Regretting the matter, the organization said it would be more alert in the future in order to ensure the cleanliness of the under-construction building.
Concerned officials of the DSCC inspected CPD's under-construction building on Sunday and found the presence of larvae of Aedes mosquitoes, in view of which, a fine of Tk20,000 was imposed.
According to the agreement with the CPD, the contractor was responsible for removal of all water on a regular basis during the construction of the building, said CPD.
However, during the Eid Holidays when the construction work was temporarily stopped, the contractor did not carry out its responsibility to remove the rain water properly, CPD added.
CPD also said that all necessary measures had been taken as per the advice of the DSCC team, and DSCC officials expressed their satisfaction after visiting the building later on the same day.
