Rajshahi city's fame spreads in home and abroad: Mayor

RAJSHAHI, May 9, 2024 (BSS)- Mayor of Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) AHM 
Khairuzzaman Liton today said fame of the present Rajshahi has spread in home 
and abroad as it has got a new look amid massive infrastructural and 
architectural development works.

"Widen streets, cleaned atmosphere, road dividers with green trees and plants 
and crafts, improved civic amenities and eye-catching street lighting at 
night have made the city attractive enormously," he said.

The mayor revealed this while addressing a press conference at the city 
Bhaban conference hall here.

The city with a 10-lakh population has been familiarized as clean, green, 
education, health and habitable in both home and abroad, Liton said.

Giving an illustration on the city's development schemes along with 
achievement of those, he said they have constructed 238.75-kilometer 
carpeting roads, 260.30-kilometer cement-concrete roads, 350.05-kilometer 
drains, 40.22-kilometer footpaths and 2,099.50-meter boundary walls.
In addition to the development of 29 Eidgah, 52 graveyards and one mortuary, 
development and beautification works of 16 water bodies were completed.

Terming the propagandas related to his development works being spread by some 
conspirator circles as baseless, biased and intentional, the RCC mayor said 
the city people will be more benefited when the implementation of the under-
construction flyovers and foot over bridges will complete successfully.

He said they are implementing a project titled "Integrated Urban 
Infrastructure Development in Rajshahi City" involving Taka 2,931.61 crore 
for its cherished development at present.

Problems related to unfit and narrow sections of the present drains and its 
low-sewerage capacity were removed. All the culverts were widened besides 
removing the silts from the base of the drains to enhance the sewerage 

He told the journalists that the physical infrastructure development were 
implemented in order to attain the goal of developing the overall 
environmental health system through building an effective and permanent water 
sewerage system in the city.

He said they have adopted three more uplift projects amounting to Taka 
2,705.08 crore for infrastructural development.

Chairman of Rajshahi Development Authority Dr Ziaul Haque, RCC Panel Mayors 
Nizam-ul-Azim and Abdul Momin and Chief Executive Officer ABM Sharif Uddin
