Ruling Awami League President Sheikh Hasina visits a nomination form sales booth at the AL central office on Bangabandhu Avenue yesterday morning after inaugurating the sale of the party’s nomination forms for the January 7 national election.
Garbage, mostly vegetable peelings and scraps, are being dumped on the banks of the Buriganga from the nearby wholesale kitchen market in the capital’s Shyambazar area. While these scraps are biodegradable and pose no serious harm to the soil, their unplanned disposal not only pollutes the riverbed but also its water, posing a significant risk to the marine life. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
