Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury, adviser to the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, on Wednesday said that the foundation stone of coal- fired power project at Rampal near Sundarban would be laid on October 22 this year.
“It would be built using the latest ultra super critical technology, so it would not affect environment of Sundarban’” the energy adviser said this at a prèss conference at Bidyut Bhaban in the city.
Criticising the long-marchers, he said many people are opposing the project just for emotion”.Bangladesh Power Development Board said all mitigation measures have been taken to protect Sundarban.
Meanwhile, The National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Ports organised a long march towards Rampal on Tuesday to drum up support against the project.
