Eighty percent of the waste of sacrificial animals on the holy Eid-ul-Azha were removed from Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) on Sunday, said a media statement signed by Makbul Hossain.
However, 11 wards of the city corporation managed to remove 100 per cent of its waste, it said.
Earlier, DNCC Mayor Atiqul Islam said that the waste of sacrificial animals will be removed from the streets of Dhaka city within 12 hours.
“The city corporation workers are cleaning waste every day and I think 12 hours are enough to remove waste of sacrificial animals,” he said.
"We have enough manpower and the Eid vacation of the staff and employees has been cancelled for removing waste soon", added the Mayor.
