BGMEA building set to be demolished on Wednesday

Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (RAJUK) will start demolishing the 16-storey Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) complex at Hatirjheel on Wednesday.

Public relations officer (PRO) of the housing and public works ministry Iftekhar Hossain confirmed this to media on Tuesday.

Housing and public works minister SM Rezaul Karim is scheduled to inaugurate the activities of the demolishment of the BGMEA building at 10:00 tomorrow, Iftekhar Hossain told media.

As part of its move to dismantle the building, RAJUK sealed off the BGMEA complex on April 2019.

In 2011, the High Court ordered demolition of the 16-storey building as it was constructed in defiance of relevant laws, calling it a ‘cancer’ in the lake.
