He was responding to an issue from reporters while inspecting the removal work of box culverts in several areas of the capital, including Kamalapur Titipara Sayedabad Gopibagh on Monday.
Earlier on Saturday, former mayor Mohammad Saeed Khokon said that Sheikh Fazle Nur Taposh had lost his eligibility for the post of mayor during a human chain within the capital.
On Sunday, Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh countered by saying, “What former DSCC mayor Saeed Khokon has said is his personal opinion. It doesn’t matter. He also said that it had been not appropriate to elucidate any statement of private resentment. He further said that if anyone takes bribes, takes a commission, or embezzles government money, it’s corruption.
