The waste of sacrificial animals will be removed from the streets of Dhaka city within 12 hours, said Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam on Tuesday.
“The city corporation workers are cleaning waste every day and I think 12 hours are enough to remove waste of sacrificial animals,” he said while talking to reporters after a meeting in the city’s Gulshan area.
"We have enough manpower and the Eid vacation of the staff and employees has been cancelled for removing waste soon", he said.
Mentioning that there are some designated places in the city to sacrifice animals, Atiqul urged people to assist them to clean the city within 12 hours.
He also directed the councilors and department concerned to ensure health guidelines in the cattle market strictly. ‘No one will be allowed to enter the cattle market without a mask and all should follow health guidelines.”
Besides, digital payment booths have been installed in six cattle markets with 24-hour service under DNCC in a bid to transfer money easily, he said.
