"We want to clean up all drains, culverts and canals in the city so that rain water cannot submerge city roads during heavy downpour or high tide", Nasir said. The Conservancy Department of the city corporation will supervise the Taka 9-crore crash programme.
Programme for eradicating mosquito and reducing water logging will continue till May 5, Chief Conservancy Officer of CCC Shafiqul Mannan Siddiqui said.

CCC Executive Engineer Sudip Basak said besides spraying for mosquito control, CCC will also remove mud and garbage from canals, drains, culverts, ponds and water bodies to reduce water logging in the city.
