‘Gazipur Unnayan Kartripakkha’ soon: Mozammel Haque

Gazipur lawmaker and Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque yesterday said “Gazipur Unnayan Kartripakkha” law will be passed in parliament soon, for development of the city in a planned way.

“Tk 8,000 crore has been approved for development of Gazipur. To enhance the capability of Gazipur City Corporation, recruitment activities are going on for 3,500-strong manpower,” he said.

He was speaking at a roundtable titled “Challenge to development of modern Gazipur and what to do: role of public representatives and professionals”, arranged by Gazipur Unnayan Parishad at Jatiya Press Club.

The minister said road communication is being modernised by constructing necessary flyovers and drainage facilities under the BRT (bus rapid transit) project to ease the communication between Dhaka and Gazipur.

To ease pressure on Dhaka-Gazipur highway, alternative route will be built and link and bypass roads will be constructed, he said.
