Emphasizing the need for planned development, he outlined measures to address flooding issues in Vashantek during the rainy season by constructing drains on every road as part of the master plan.

Mayor Atiqul Islam said: "Councillors, including parliamentarians, are actively collaborating to organize Vashantek, and I urge residents to allocate a minimum of 20 feet wide space for road construction." 

He highlighted the vision to enhance the beauty of Vashantek, surpassing Gulshan, through initiatives such as constructing a wide road connecting Uttara to ECB Square and developing canals with cycle lanes and green spaces.

Mohammad Ali Arafat, MP of Dhaka-17 Constituency, affirmed his commitment to planned, sustainable development in Vashantek. 

He mentioned ongoing efforts to rehabilitate slum dwellers and the prime minister's directive to provide modern amenities in habitable buildings for the residents, emphasizing the avoidance of slum-to-slum replacement.
