“The construction of infrastructures for the waterlogging project should be realistic and sustainable so that the people of Chittagong can enjoy the long-term benefits of the project. No negligence will be tolerated in this regard,” Tajul added.

Responding to a question from reporters on the dengue situation in the country, the minister said: "We are making a concerted effort to stop the spread of dengue. Concerned ministries, city corporation mayors, councilors, and volunteers are working tirelessly.”

He said there is no substitute for awareness to prevent dengue.

The minister said: “We have taken all kinds of initiatives to make the people aware. Extensive publicity is being carried out everywhere on television and in newspapers. But if people remain callous then dengue will be difficult to deal with”.
