The fisheries department released fish fry in Kuril Lake, marking National Fisheries Week 2022
The mayor said a community centre and a playground will soon be built in the area.
He also urged people concerned to ensure that sewage cannot be directly discharged into lakes.
“The city corporation team is doing door to door inspecting sewage lines to ensure proper waste management. Strict action will be taken if sewage lines are found connected with drainage systems or canals,” he warned.
Buildings are not allowed to be built by filling water bodies in the city. Water bodies must be protected for future generations, the mayor added.
Atiqul Islam also urged everyone to remain cautious about the rise in dengue cases and take precautions in this regard.
Dhaka District Fisheries Officer BM Mustafa Kamal moderated the programme.
Councillor of Ward 17 of Dhaka North, Md Ishaq Mia, Reserved Women Councillor Hasina Bari Chowdhury, and Dhaka North’s Zonal Executive Officer, Zulkar Nain, were also present.
