Atiqul expressed concern over the grabbing of some city streets allegedly by owners of buildings deviating from RAJUK's design.

DNCC has decided to recover those roads and ensure their width according to the actual design, he said.

After the list is prepared, the councillors of the concerned wards in collaboration with the property department of the DNCC will ensure the widening of the roads by removing illegal occupants, the mayor added.
