Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) mayor Sayeed Khokon on Wednesday said no hawker will be allowed to sit in Gulistan area on working days and daytime.
The mayor came up with the announcement at Nagar Bhaban while talking to reporters after his meeting with leaders of different hawkers associations, reports UNB news agency.
The authorities concerned will not allow any hawker to sit in Gulistan and its adjoining areas for ensuring smooth movement of vehicles and pedestrians, he said.
A list of hawkers, who sit in those areas, has been prepared and identity cards will be provided to them, said the DSCC mayor.
If the hawkers want to change their profession, they will get the necessary support, he added.
