Left-leaning leaders condemn attack on Rampal protesters
Representatives of left-leaning organisations has condemned the recent attack on cultural activists in Narayanganj during their demonstration against the government decision to establish coal based power plant in Rampal near the Sundarbans. In a protest organised on Wednesday by the National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Port in Shahbagh, Dhaka, they also protested “the government’s manipulation of Unesco statement on the Rampal issue.” Unidentified miscreants assaulted four cultural activists on Tuesday as they staged a demonstration protesting the Rampal power plant project organised by the national committee at Twaki Moncho in Chashara Shaheed Minar, Narayanganj. Speaking at on Wednesday’s protest, Communist Party of Bangladesh central leader Ruhin Hossain Prince alleged that Awami League leader Shamim Osman’s sons were behind the attack on the Rampal protesters in Narayanganj. He demanded that the attackers be identified and strict action be taken against them immediately. He also announced that different protest programmes will be held from Shyamnagar uapzila of Satkhira to Sarankhola upazila of Bagerhat on July 25. People’s Solidarity Movement Convener Zonayed Saki said the government had resorted to lying and published a twisted version of Unesco’s statement on Rampal power plant. “By doing so, the government has damaged Bangladesh’s reputation in the whole world,” he added. “In Narayanganj, godfathers like Shamim Osman regularly commit murder. Now they have started to conceal the murders to stop the protest. I want to say that each of these attacks will be dealt with,” Zonayed said, urging young people to join the protests on July 25.
