Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam said today that the commercial license would be revoked if the stores remained open during the ongoing blockade, which defies government instructions.
“We will cancel the commercial license and take legal action if some shopkeepers keep their shop open during this lockout,” Atiqul said during a visit to the Bijoy Sarani area of the capital.

During the lockout, helpless and distressed people will be able to get help from the city company by calling 333, Atiqul said, adding, “Our number 333 is active now.”
