Dumping wastes under Hanif Flyover

Jatrabari is a very important part of the capital for many reasons. It is the entrance of Dhaka for the people from the east. In 2013, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated Mayor Mohammad Hanif Flyover, the longest flyover in Bangladesh, which connects Gulistan with Jatrabari.
Residents of Jatrabari area had to suffer from the day the construction started. They have endured the trouble in the hope that the big project would enhance the development of this area, and they would eventually get rid of the notorious Sydabad-Jatrabari traffic jam. But everyday the situation beneath the flyover is nothing short of chaotic. Some people including local residents, hawkers and vendors are using the space under the flyover as their dustbin. Even the city corporation is dumping garbage there. This must end.
