Update : 17 Oct 2015, 07:12 PM

Police and ruling party men yesterday again obstructed the road march activists on their way to Bagerhat’s Rampal launched in protest against the proposed 1,320MW coal-based power plant beside the Sundarbans.

Communist Party of Bangladesh and Bangladesher Samajtantrik Dal (BSD) along with individual green activists began the road march on October 15 from Dhaka urging the government to cancel the joint venture power project for the sake of the world’s largest mangrove forest. They managed to reach Khulna yesterday afternoon.

Prof Anu Muhammad in his Facebook post said that local police and stick-wielding Awami League supporters had obstructed their march in Magura while they were also barred from entering Jhenaidah town.

“Police and ruling party goons cordoned the activists to Jessore. Moreover, the criminals created chaos during a rally at Katakhali,” the National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Ports convener said.

Socialist Student Front leader Fahima Kaniz Lava said that several activists had been injured when they tried to bring out a procession in Magura as police charged batons.

On Friday, the road march was obstructed by the police in Manikganj.
