A Correspondent :
The project on Modernization of United Nation (UN) Park in Chittagong was not approved by the Pre-ecnec meeting due to objection by City Corporation (CCC).
The Ministry of Housing and Works  submitted the project on Modernization of UN Park in Chittagong to Pre-ecnec meeting for approval. But, CCC officer present at the Pre-ecnec meeting objected to the proposal. As a result, the Pre-ecnec meeting did not approve the project on Modernization of UN Park in Chittagong on September 7, according to sources.
Although the mayor of CCC A J M Nasir Uddin had minimized the difference of opinion with the Housing Minister Engineer Mosharraf Hossain MP over the dispute of ownership of United Nation (UN) Park in Chittagong, the CCC sent official to the Pre-ecnec meeting to submit objection to the project submitted by the Ministry of Housing.
The CCC also claimed that it is the owner of the UN Park in Chittagong in connection with the maintenance. In the mean time, Engineer Mosharraf Hossain MP expressed concern over the role of mayor of CCC  Nasir Uddin. He said he talked to mayor Nasir Uddin and he agreed with me for modernization of the UN park in Chittagong. But, unfortunately, violating his commitment he sent official to the Pre-ecnec meeting to submit objection.
"However, we have also filed case against CCC for the ownership of the UN Park in Chittagong. The Ministry of Housing and Works is the owner of the park while CCC is liable for only the management and maintenance of the park. But, presently CCC is claiming the ownership which is a violation of law and rule. So, the Ministry of Housing is filing the case to restore the ownership of UN Park."
On the other hand, mayor Nasir Uddin said, "We will renovate the swimming pool of UN Park. After making the swimming pool usable it will be opened for all to practice swimming."
He said the asset should be maintained properly. The former mayor of CCC who made the swimming pool at UN Park did not construct it properly. He also did not maintain the park as well as swimming pool properly," Nasir alleged.
"Now, we have taken decision to maintain the UN Park and the swimming pool properly," he added.   It may be mentioned that Housing and Works   Minister Engineer Mosharraf Hossain MP and Mayor of CCC Nasir Uddin were face to face over the controlling of UN Park in Chittagong. Later, they minimized and overcame the dispute by discussion.
On December 24, in 2016, after resolving the crisis between them, Mosharraf Hossain MP told the journalist during his visit at Jamburi Park at Agrabad in the port city, "Mayor of CCC A J M Nasir Uddin could realize his fault and we have resolved the problem by discussion. So, there is no difference of opinion over the dispute on United Nation (UN) Park."
He further said at that time, the relationship between them was very good. "The Ministry of Housing will build a modern park there and we will give the charge of maintenance of the new park to CCC.   But, later, CCC submitted the objection over the dispute of ownership of the UN Park causing the reject of the project.
Sources said, CCC was going to lease the United Nation Park to a private company as part of commercialization of the park in May in the last year. The CCC completed the tender process at that time.
Sources said, CCC has called tender for management of the UN Park on February 9 in 2016. Two companies participated at the tender while one of these, Elite Park Limited offered to deposit Tk two crore and two lakh at once as security money and taka two lak and 2250 is rent per month. Considering the highest payment, CCC was going to award the tender to Elite Park Limited, sources added.  
But, the ministry denied the proposal in this regard.
