Mayors claim 'successful' animal wastes disposal unlike last years16 September, 2016 12:51
Mayors of the two Dhaka city corporations on Thursday claimed that they 'successfully' removed much before the 48-hour deadline cent percent wastes of the sacrificial animals generated during Eid-ul-Azha.
They said around 4.38 lakh sacrificial animals were slaughtered in the two cities on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, one of the largest religious festivals of the Muslim community.
The two mayors also stressed the need for carrying out a campaign to make people slaughter their sacrificial animals at the designated spots.
At a press conference at Nagarbhaban around 11am, Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon said, "We've been able to remove cent percent waste in the South City Corporation before our 48-hour deadline with the help of city dwellers."
He said around 19,008 tonnes leftovers of sacrificial animals and other wastes were removed in 324 vehicles through 902 trips in the last two days.
Besides, he said, they spread 1,000 litres anti-germ liquid and 30 tonnes bleaching power in the DSCC areas.
He said around 2.40 lakh animals were slaughtered in DSCC.
