Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam on Tuesday inaugurated a cleanliness drive at East West University in city’s Aftabnagar area.
“I think this will encourage others to conduct similar drives in their own areas,” he told reporters.
Atiqul said that students can raise awareness among people to build a safer city. “We’ve learnt many things from the students and they’ve shown us what’s right or wrong,” he said.
The mayor promised to build a foot overbridge on the main road in front of the university.
East West University Vice-Chancellor MM Shahidul Hasan, among others, was present at the drive’s launch.
