‘Draft of 2 master plans finalised to save rivers’

UNB, Dhaka

The government finalised drafts of two master plans to prevent pollution and occupation of rivers around the capital and the Karnafuli in Chattogram, LGRD Minister Tajul Islam said Wednesday. Another master plan will be drawn to save Padma, Meghna, Turag and Pungli rivers, he said after a meeting of master plan making committee at the secretariat.

To prevent river pollution and increase navigability around the capital, the master plan will be performed in three (pollution, occupation and navigability) phases, he said. Under the master plan four steps - crash programme (1 year), short-term (3 year), middle-term (5 year) and long-term (10 year) - will be taken to save rivers, he added.

The decision of making the master plan was taken on June 14, 2016, in a meeting of Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (Ecnec).
