As part of the humanitarian assistance on behalf of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the DNCC Mayor distributed 1,500 packets relief materials comprising rice, pulse, potato, soyabean oil and salt among 1,500 jobless transport workers and poor people.
To face the coronavirus pandemic, he said a peoples welfare programme is being continued by the DNCC, adding: “Emergency food assistance support for the distressed people is continuously being operated by the DNCC after making a call on 333 number.”
Even the DNCC has opened hotline numbers 09602222333 and 09602222334for the helpless people, he mentioned.
Calling the illegal grabbers to give up their occupied land inside the canal, Mayor said “the illegal grabbers must quickly remove their illegal structures which have been constructed by occupying land in the canal, otherwise illegal structures will be demolished through the drive led by the DNCC.”
“No legal notice will be issued against any illegal grabbers, they will be evicted without issuing any further notice,” the mayor said.
Atique, however, stressed on undertaking a neat and clean program by enforcing a slogan "clean your own household for 10 minutes at 10 o’clock every Saturday". All have to participate spontaneously in the program to curb further mortality due to dengue and chikungunya under the pandemic situation.
Side by side, everyone must have to follow the proper health guidelines and government rules including wearing musk in order to protect from coronavirus spreading, he added.
