SAVE THE SUNDARBANS: STOP RAMPAL POWER PLANT

SAVE THE SUDARBANS

Bangladesh Government is going ahead to set up a coal fired power plant very close vicinity of the Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest. This is an India-Bangladesh joint venture the 1320 MW Rampal coal fired power plant. Sundarbans is under threat as Rampal power plant will emit huge carbon, toxic gases, smoke and ash which will have devastating environmental impact and may destroy the forest as the project area lies only 10 KM away from the forest.

The Sundarban is the repository of large variety of flora and fauna, rich in biodiversity; it provides sanctuary to nearly 60 verities of bird life, world’s natural wildlife wonder and natural shield against tidal surge.

Rampal power project will bring totally negative impact on environment, ecology and livelihood. Experts are absolutely against this project within such an environmentally critical area. Environmentally deleterious Rampal power project should be abandoned immediately. We demand immediate stop of harmful Rampal power project.
