Update : 10 Nov 2014, 07:40 PM

Unplanned urbanisation, lack of coordination in implementing various programmes and projects by the relevant government bodies, and existence of corruption and mismanagement are the main barrier to make Bangladesh a developed country and to make the Chittagong a habitable city with international standard, said speakers a programme in Chittagong yesterday. 

Only the government and non-government organisations cannot ensure a safe, clean and hygienic environment in the country.  People from all walks of life also need to be aware of the issue, they said. 

Everyone should keep their surroundings clean and hygienic to ensure a safe and hygienic living environment for today and for future generation, they added.

The speakers were addressing roundtable discussion on  “State’s role for protecting clean environment, hygienic living and civil rights”  at the Hotel Tower Inn in Chittagong.

Bangladesh Real Estate Directory (BD-RED) organised the programme ahead of the three-day long 12th  BD-RED Abashon Mela which will begin in the port city on Thursday.

Naziumuddin Shyamol, bureau chief of Dainik Sokaler Khobor in Chittagong, read out a keynote paper, while MA Malek, editor of Dainik Azadi, was present as the chief guest.

In his speech, Naziumuddin said lack of proper sewerage system is one of the main problems of the port city.

Organisations involved in the housing industry should put emphasis on ensuring modern sewage system and transportation of wastes from the residential area they develop, he said.    

Ali Haidar, bureau chief of Bonik Barta in Chittagong, said government should ensure a proper living facilities for the country’s poor people also.
