Anti-Rampal activists: PM’s speech unfortunate
“There are many exaggerations and wrong information in her speech,” committee Convener Engineer Sheikh Muhammad Shahidullah and Member Secretary Prof Anu Mohammad said in a statement issued just after Sheikh Hasina’s press conference yesterday. Hasina in her speech blasted the protesters for spreading “negative, baseless, fictitious and misleading information” and also questioned the motive of the BNP chief for supporting the movement. The National Committee is set to hold a press conference at 11am tomorrow to give reactions to the speeches of the premier and also BNP chief Khaleda Zia, who on August 24 expressed solidarity with the anti-Rampal movement. The statement said: “People hoped that the primer’s conference will emphasise on issues raised by independent experts and she will consider public opinion to save the Sundarbans by scrapping Rampal power plant. “But it is unfortunate what she said … influenced by the company’s advertising campaign.” The National Committee also alleges that the BNP leader has spread confusions over the movement through her speech, and on the other hand, the premier tried to foil the movement taking into account Khaleda’s speech. In reaction to Hasina’s questioning the sources of funds for the movement, the statement said that they were opposing the project based on scientific data and evidence, and that the people joined them spontaneously.
