'Illegally occupied playgrounds to be retrieved'

The ruling Awami League mayoral candidate for the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Atiqul Islam on Friday assured the townspeople that he would take befitting steps to recover the city’s playground which has been illegally occupied by vested quarters for long.

He was talking to reporters after a friendly cricket match at Youth Club in city’s Gulshan area.

“If I am elected in Dhaka City Corporations’ polls, I will retrieve those occupied playgrounds of the city to facilitate sports for youth to make the city free from drugs and crime, engaging youths to the sports which is the best possible option,” he said.

The mayoral aspirant took part in the match. If playgrounds are accessible to youths, they will easily get rid of any kind of frustration as well as anti-social activities.
