]The implementation work of the WASA water supply project for the Rajshahi City Corporation is yet to start even after around one year and a half.

The Water Supply and Sewerage Authority project for the Rajshahi city has remained held up due to bureaucratic tangle, sources concerned said.

Two WASA supply projects — one for Rajshahi City Corporation and another for Khulna City Corporation — were undertaken during the past BNP-led alliance government in September, 2006.

Former prime minister Khaleda Zia of the alliance government signed the two projects in October the same year, official sources said. The implementation of the WASA project for the Khulna city is scheduled to start from March 1 this year but the fate of the project for the Rajshahi city is still uncertain.

The present interim government has recently decided to start work of the WASA project only for the Khulna city, the sources said.

The Rajshahi Rakkha Sangram Parishad, a social organisation, has urged the government to immediately start work of the WASA project for the Rajshahi city.

The Parishad also threatened to go for movement with the city people to press for implementation of the project. Recently, they distributed leaflets among the city dwellers asking them to get prepared for any movement.

Lawyers of Rajshahi sent a memorandum to the chief adviser on Sunday demanding immediate steps to start project implementation work.

The total demand for water in the Rajshahi city is around 226 lakh gallons while the corporation supplies only 166 lakh gallons a day, according to RCC water department sources.
