He said, “the tap water is one of the major sources of getting water for the people living around the area. Unfortunately, it was damaged by heavy rainstorm. And I took the responsibility of renovating it in order to be able to put it into usage”.

“I carried out this project purely on charity work note and not in return of favour of any kind from an individual, organisation or the government or as the case may be”, Mahmud added.
