Mega plan by Rampal protesters soon


PV Desk : The plan to be presented on Jul 22 will involve less cost than the current one and act as a counter proposal to the government’s ‘regressive plans’, Prof Anu Muhammad, the committee’s member secretary, told a rally in Dhaka on Tuesday.

The government justification for plans for a thermal plant in Bagerhat’s Rampal and a nuclear power plant in Pabna’s Rooppur was for meeting rising demands, he said.

“There is no bigger fraud than this. Rampal and Rooppur plants are not being set up to meet demands but to secure the interest of foreign countries,” he commented.
