THE GARBAGE POWER PLANT : AT AMIN BAZAR GREAT EXPERIENCE OF MEETING MR. CHENG SEN – THE TALL COMMERCIAL MANAGER OF CHINA MACHINERY ENGINEERING CORPORATION (CMEC) :

1. It was a very interesting meet and experience for the whole half day. Visiting the “VAST ময়লার ডাব্বা’স” in Amin Bazar was a life time experience. For a while from the Savar Highways it looked like Kala Pahar – Alutila of Khagrachari – so much of piled garbages, looking like Hills / Mounds in the Chittagong Hill Tracts.
2. It was all full of ‘Unbearable & Unpalatable’ smell but I inhaled with pleasure while wading through the piles of Garbage and Wastage of the Dhaka City accumulated over the years. My ‘Aim’ was to get the Guard Services contract in the Plant and show to the Chinese people that we are an Incredible, Invincible and also an Incorrigible nation : bad smell simply we love it. Elite Force is the Best for the job of Guarding the Plant !
3. Our ‘Presentation’ was excellent. There was ‘Spell Bound’ situation. The whole Chinese Team were amazed to see the video clip of the “Dog Show” prepared for them. They said they could not imagine anything like this in Bangladesh. In the clip, we had glimpses of the ’Sena Prodhan’ taking salute from the Dog Squad, last year in a Sena Job Mela at Sena Malancha. This created great added value to our security proposal to the Chinese company.
4. But then, the most ‘Pitiable and Pathetic’ was when we tried to say and prevail upon the Chinese Company that they must pay a good salary to the poor guards of Bangladesh. But how much could we ask when the Government has fixed only Taka 9,000/- ++ as the Minimum Take Home Salary of a Guard and nothing allocated for our Overhead; Managements; Training; Admin; Taxes etc etc.
5. We were told that, they have other good known security vendors & competitors to take up the ‘Great Job’ at much lower than our Quotations. Mind you the project will cost Tk. 15,325/- Crores. Surely there will be extensions. Local “MAROFICATIONS” will only be known, when it will be in the media that a Pillow / Screw Cost Tk. 83,000/- Takas per piece. Hail the Bangladesh !
