Govt can’t stop anti-Rampal movement thru torture: Anu

UNB

Member secretary of the National Committee to Protect Oil-Gas, Mineral Resources and Power-Port Prof Anu Muhammad yesterday said the government cannot stop their movement against the Rampal power project through resorting to torture, reports UNB. “Even torture can’t put the anti-Rampal campaigners off the movement,” he told a rally in front of the National Press Club. The National Committee organised the rally as part of its countrywide demonstrations against the police action on the agitating people at Shahbagh during Thursday’s half-day hartal. Noting that the movement to save the Sundarbans is getting stronger day by day, Prof Anu Muhammad said the government will be forced to cancel the Rampal project through it.
He also alleged that the government has been making false statements about the Rampal project through ads in newspapers and televisions.Rejecting the government’s statement that it will use ultra supercritical technology for the power plant and that of Rampal power plant’s managing director that it would be a supercritical technology-based plant, the National Committee leader said the plant is not an ultra supercritical one at all.
He said the people have got united on the issue of saving the Sundarbans. “Even, those who didn’t join the movement physically are not supporting the Rampal power plant,” he said. The rally was also addressed by National Committee leaders Mizanur Rahman, Dhaka University Prof Tanzim Uddin Khan, Saiful Haque and Bazlur Rashid Firoze.
