Taposh to take office as DSCC mayor tomorrow
DHAKA, May 15, 2020 (BSS) – Newly elected mayor of Dhaka South City
Corporation (DSCC) Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh will take over charge
of the office tomorrow.
After taking the charge, the new DSCC mayor will hold a virtual press
conference at 3 pm from his office at the Nagar Bhaban, DSCC’s public
relations officer Uttam Kumar Ray told BSS.
He said the charge taking ceremony will be held in a small scale
maintaining the social distancing in the wake of the COVID-19 situation.
Polls to the DSCC and Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) were held on
February 1 while ruling Awami League-backed candidates- Barrister Sheikh
Fazle Noor Taposh and Atiqul Islam-swept the elections as mayors of the DSCC
and the DNCC respectively.
Both of them were sworn in on February 27. But they had to wait for taking
over the duties until the completion of the running tenure.
Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam, however, took charge of
office on Wednesday while Taposh had to wait for completion of the tenure of
current DSCC Mayor Mohammad Sayeed Khokan till May 16.
Taposh is the second mayor of the DSCC after division of the Dhaka City
Corporation (DCC) into two city corporations– DNCC and DSCC– in 2015 while
Mohammad Sayeed Khokan was elected the first mayor of the DSCC in the year.
