The committee held about a dozen meetings until October 1998 and some progress in waterlogged areas and mosquito control were the only outcomes, says an authoritative book: "Megacity Governance in South Asia: A comparative Study" by Kamal Siddiqui and others. That move failed, according to the book, as the minister was too busy. He was there to exercise his control and not out of any genuine commitment to solve the problems of Dhaka city. The minister-led committee ceased to exist after BNP leader Sadek Hossain Khoka was elected mayor in April 2002.

This is a pioneering study comparing the governance arrangements in the five megacities (cities with population around 10 million) of South Asia, namely Dhaka in Bangladesh, Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi in India and Karachi in Pakistan within a common analytical framework. The book is divided into seven chapters. The first and introductory chapter lays down the theoretical underpinnings and methodology of the study, besides identifying the major urbanization trends in South Asia. In each of the five city chapters, the trends in the quality and extent of city services and the major components of good governance, namely existing legal framework of municipal government, accountability, transparency, decentralization, efficiency, coordination, minimization of corruption, financial management, personnel practices, participation/ empowerment, equity, etc are first discussed and delineated. An attempt is then made to explain these in terms of the city power structure, resistance from within the municipal government, the degree of social capital and the strength of mobilization among the intended beneficiaries (in particular, the poor and the women) of municipal services. In the last and concluding chapter, the governance experiences of the five megacities are compared in order to see the similarities, differences and innovations, and at the same time to suggest ways and means to move forward from the existing situation. The findings and recommendations of the study will, hopefully, be useful both to academics and those involved in urban governance.
