Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh today said every ward of DSCC will have separate gym facilities as it plays an important role in physical and mental development of the youths.
"We are establishing centres for organising social functions in each ward under Dhaka South City Corporation. We would keep separate facilities for gym in those centres. We have around 30 gymnasiums and we are going to add modern equipment to those. We would also try to improve the environment of those gyms. I would like to urge the youths to use those gyms," he said.

"I would have not been able to realize how much contribution this Bodybuilding Federation can make for the youths, if I haven't had come here," he added.
DSCC Mayor later distributed awards among the winners of different weight categories of the competition.
