Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Annisul Huq yesterday said stern action will be taken against those who were involved in the attacks during Sunday’s eviction drive at Tejgaon truck stand in the capital. The mayor said he knew who misguided the workers and that he will not allow anybody to occupy roads and none will be allowed to park vehicles on roads. “An influential group erected illegal structures and shops on the truck stand premises and are involved in drug dealings. If illegal structures are removed from the truck stand, they will count losses. That’s why they pelted stones during the eviction drive. The attackers will face tough action. You (people) just co-operate with me,” the mayor told journalists at media briefing at a city hotel yesterday. Huq also claimed that those, who had been grabbing the truck stand land, possess black money. “The grabbers played the card of politics with me. I did not say anything. There were police with me but they did not do anything. Many things could be done because there was force but they remained silent,” he added. Huq also said that he has requested the home ministry and police administration to nab the attackers. “None will be spared. Those who tried to show power are doing it by the power of drugs and extortion money. This power will not sustain,” he observed. The mayor also said that a modern truck stand will be constructed and that the people will get the benefit soon as there will be no illegal parking on roads in the Tejgaon truck stand area.

Mr Annisul Huq, Former President, SAARC CCI from Bangladesh became the first mayor of Dhaka North City Corporation. Mr. Huq with his ‘table clock’ electoral symbol bagged 460,117 votes against his nearest rival BNP-backed Tabith Mohammed Awal son of another former FBCCI president Mr. Abdul Awal Mintoo, received 325,080 votes for his ‘bus’ symbol.
In a major step towards easing the city’s crippling traffic congestion, Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) has freed the Shyamoli-Aminbazar road in the capital from illegal parking.
With the DNCC initiative, the road, which remained crammed with buses and trucks parked haphazardly, has now got a refreshingly new look, much to the relief of city commuters.
There are hundreds of bus counters at Shyamoli, Kalyanpur and Gabtoli Bus Terminal from where buses set off for different districts across the country. And the road, more often than not, remained clogged with these buses, as the bus owners occupied two-thirds of the road by parking their vehicles there.
“Just a couple of days ago, it took me 30 to 45 minutes to go to Shyamoli from Gabtoli. That’s why I used to leave home early. But now it takes just a few minutes,” said Amir Hossain, an NGO worker.
