Gabtali Bus Terminal was leased to Rafi Traders Limited at Tk 7 crore 39 lakh 20 thousand. Md Liaqut Hossain, managing director of the organisation, received the charge from the mayor.
On the other hand, Gazi Rayyan Enterprise got the lease of Mohakhali Bus Terminal at Tk 4 crore 62 blakh. Gazi Rayyan Enterprise belongs to Awami Swecchasebak League senior vice-president Gazi Mesbahul Hossain (Sacchu). Mesbahul Hossain himself took the charge of Mohakhali Bus Terminal from the mayor.
Sources said the DNCC decided to appoint lessees for both the terminals through open tenders to increase revenue earnings.
During the handing over of the charges, Mayor Atiqul Islam said, “Earlier, revenues could not be collected from these bus terminals up to the expected level. When I came, I saw that there were many faults. They didn’t pay revenues to the DNCC on various pretexts. Vested quarters were taking advantages.”
The Mayor said lease was given through open tenders. The DNCC officials were given threats because of the decision of floating open tenders. “I told them not to pay heed to anybody’s threat,” he said.
Atiqul Islam further said the new leaseholders have been asked to maintain a beautiful environment in the bus terminals. If they fail, their contracts will be cancelled, he said.
