DOT Desk: Saiful, Hridoy and Abu Bokkor were holding their hands tightly. On the sloping edge of the barrage at Sadarghat Launch Terminal, they were trying to hold each other so that Abu Bokkor doesn’t fall while picking the waste near the water, reports the Business Standard. This is a photo of a popular FaceBook group named BD clean members working on cleaning a place in Sadarghat Launch Terminal. BD Clean is a voluntary and apolitical platform of over 17,000 conscious civilians from all over the country working restlessly to fulfill the dream of a clean, germ-free and healthy Bangladesh.
Farid Uddin is the dreamer of this great initiative. Farid completed his graduation from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Dhaka University back in 2005. In 2016 he formed this platform.
“My father was a freedom fighter. I learnt from him about my duties as a citizen of this country in a very early age. And this has made me think about my responsibility to the country and about engaging others to fulfill this duty”, says Farid, now CEO of Event Management & Interior.
