Dhaka North City Corporation [DNCC] has launched a move against drugs through sports. With the motto to mark the Mujib Borsho and the country’s 50 years of independence DNCC Mayor Cup is set to take the field from November 15.

Earlier, Dhaka South City Corporation had organized a similar sporting activity involving football, cricket and volleyball.

All 54 wards in the DNCC will participate in the tournament along with teams representing the reserved women councilors. Selection for the teams will be open to public based of the wards.

Former Bangladesh captains Mashrafe bin Mortaza, Akram Khan, ODI captain Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh football team captain Jamal Bhuiyan, volleyball player Harshit Biswas, actors Ferdous and Purnima are promoting the tournament.

“This year the Mayor Cup will feature three events. We all want our city to be beautiful. But our children nowadays are mostly busy with mobile and laptops. It is not their fault but of us. We are not being able to arrange a way for them to go to the field for sports. It is our failure. We are occupying all the fields and making buildings on them. Our children are not getting any fields to play,” said DNCC mayor Atiqul Islam at the program launch ceremony on Monday.

“It is important for the children to play in the open field alongside studies. This is why we are arranging this tournament. We all are trying to create a scope for the children to play sports. There is no alternative to sports. Our aim is to have this tournament in a bigger scale,” the DNCC mayor added.
