Bangabandhu National Stadium, a venue that serves as a multipurpose sports arena has now seen a new use for the outer field as a vegetable cultivation spot.
A video on social media recently came to light which showed vegetables being grown at the Paltan end of the stadium. The vegetation stretches from the end of the athletics track till the fences of the spectator gallery.
Considering the strangeness of the situation, the commentator expressed his amusement and questions the lack of action taken by the stadium’s authority.
This might not be the first stadium to host a garden of vegetables, but it is certainly the first in our agrarian country and the soil in the stadium seems well suited to grow the crops.
