I have been living in Banasree area for a few years. The area has been expanding rapidly and many dwellers from different parts of Dhaka city are shifting to Bonosree as house rent of the area is comparatively cheaper than other areas. Though people are preferring this area to other areas, Bonosree faces several problems. A lake is flowing beside the Banosree area which is adding woes to dwellers of the area. The canal is full of stinking and filthy water as people are dumping their household waste indiscriminately in the canal and thereby blocking the flow of water.
The canal being dirty is also the breeding ground of mosquitoes and people of the area have to face mosquitoe menace. Due to nauseating smell of polluted water of the canal, dwellers as well as passers-by of nearest road have to bear with a disgusting situation. No initiative has so far been taken by the Dhaka City Corporation or any other organisation in this respect. We appeal to the concerned authorities to take urgent steps to save the canal from illegal encroachment and household waste.
