Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) mayor-elect Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh has vowed to ensure all basic services for citizens within 90 days of taking charge.

“The door of Nagar Bhaban will always remain open for all citizens as my aim is to make the city livable," he told reporters at a press conference at his campaign office in Dhanmondi on Sunday, marking his landslide victory in the city corporation elections.

The voter turnout could have been much higher, Taposh said.

Dedicating the victory to Dhaka dwellers, Taposh thanked all those who voted for him.

Unofficial results of the Election Commission show Taposh bagged 424,595 votes, while his rival, BNP's Ishraque Hossain bagged 236,512 votes. Out of 2,453,196 voters, some 711,488 cast their vote, which is 29.002% of all DSCC voters.

Taposh said Dhaka residents cast their votes in favor of the “boat” to help ensure a developed and modern city.

Meanwhile, all posters and campaign related materials will be removed from the areas under his jurisdiction by tomorrow, he said.

He requested all councilors-elect and Awami League leaders and activists to help remove posters and other campaign material within the deadline.

“We are yet to have any technology to dispose of the solid plastic. So plastic from the posters will be processed manually,” he said.

BNP's strike unexpected

BNP should honour the people’s decision he said, adding: "But observing hartal against the people's verdict is unexpected. 

“We are always careful about the unlawful exercise of different political groups,” he added. 

“I want to do my best,” he said.
