Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam said Drones will be used to prevent illegal occupation in the City Corporation area.

The mayor made the remarks in response to a question from reporters during a visit to Mirpur-11 at 12 noon on Friday.

DNCC Mayor said illegal installations or occupations are found wherever we go to work for the development of Dhaka metropolis. Illegal possession is re-occupied after eviction. So drone cameras will be used to monitor whether the re-occupation is taking place after the eviction operation. I have already given instructions about this. In particular, drones will be used to monitor the two banks of the canal. A central control system will be set up for this which helps to monitor everything from a place. Because we want to be digital.

The mayor said that road number 4, Avenue No. 3 of Mirpur-11 is very important in terms of communication. The road will be repaired after evicting illegal occupants. In the meantime, Tk 30 crore have been approved for the construction work of this road. This road will be 60 feet to 75 feet wide.

The mayor thanked the local political leaders and the police for their cooperation in the eviction drive.
