Earlier, at 9.30 am, DNCC Mayor Mohammad Atiqul Islam inaugurated the clean-up drive at Mohammadpur Eidgah ground organized by BD Clean. Some 1,800 volunteers of BD Clean cleared the garbage of Ward No. 31 of DNCC all day long.
Inaugurating the clean-up operation, he said it would not work if people continue to throw waste here and there and blame authorities.
Atiqul Islam said, "We keep our house clean and throw the garbage outside. After opening the shop in the morning, all the garbage is thrown in the drain of the corporation. You will throw the garbage outside, and BD clean will clean it, it can't continue."
