All election camps to be removed soon: Sayeed Khokon

Dhaka South City Corporation mayor Sayeed Khokon today said all the temporary election camps set up during the 11th national polls will be removed within the quickest possible time.

The Mayor said this while inaugurating removal work of makeshift election camps at Segunbagicha in the city on Saturday.

Sayeed Khokon said that earlier instruction was given to remove all election-related posters, banners, and other campaign materials within next 48 hours. Most of them were removed by this time while some are still visible in differed areas of the city, he said.

"If you see any poster, banner or festoon on flyover or in any other place then you will inform us to keep the city clean," Khokon said.

"We want to remove all the temporary election camps so that people can walk freely on pavements and we can keep our city clean," he added.

THE MAN WHO BRINGS HOME FLOWERS FOR HIS DAUGHTERS EVERY DAY... Sitting beside a tree on Dhaka University campus, Jamal Uddin makes a garland with bokul flowers. Every morning, the 52-year-old collects these small, sweet-smelling white flowers from Ramna Park and makes around 40 garlands. He sells each for Tk 10. Jamal said most of his regulars are university students who always greet him with a smile. But, he said, the best part of his day is when he returns home with remaining bokuls, gives them to his three daughters and sees them beaming with joy. Photo: Prabir Das
