Shahbagh road opposite to National Museum
The Dhaka City Corporation plans a drive to clear the footpath in front of the National Museum at Shahbagh, said a high official of the corporation’s estate department on Tuesday. When the occupiers come to know of such drives, they remove their goods and leave, and then return after the drive ends. The florists have teamed up as Shahbagh Flower Traders’ Association and seek a stay order from the court whenever the corporation initiates a drive, the official said. The vendors say that roadside shops had been mushrooming, through paying extortion money to linemen, police and local goons.
