Mosharraf Hossain, general secretary of Bangladesh Inter-District Truck, Covered Van, Mini Truck Drivers Workers Union, said there is no permission from the municipal corporation for the truck stand, but the mayor is aware of the issue.

He said he started parking trucks on unused land during incidents of arson ahead of national elections. Regarding toll, they claimed that they collect Tk 30 for disabled, helpless and unemployed workers, and it is approved by the government. He also claimed that he was not aware of charging Taka 50 from trucks.

When contacted, DNCC Mayor Atiqul Islam said there are plans to build a plant and animal hospital as well as a hydro eco park in the reclaimed land. The project will start soon and all the trucks will already be removed.
