http://Hundreds of villagers near Barapukuria 250MW coal-fired power plant in Parbatipur upazila at a human chain yesterday protested the environment pollution and its adverse impact on the locals due to pumping out of huge underground water and release of toxic fly ash generated by the plant.
The human chain was formed at Dudipur near the power plant. Dudipur Gram Jiban Bachao Sangram Committee organised the rally.
They also urged the government to meet their seven-point demand.
The demand includes compensation for the affected villagers, ensuring water supply free of cost for the affected people and power connection to the villages.
Local UP chairman Mamunur Rahman Chowdhury said at least 10,000 people of 11 villages were badly affected by the power plant./country/villagers-protest-pollution-1305001
arguably the craziest of choices , choosing a ,UN/ N H site, upheaval of boating in millions of tons ,TO MAYBE Create at best a foreign patnership expensive power and produce 1130m/w, possibly losing the home of the few remaining Bengal tigers /and others that relay on the special environment, Against farmland to be return, profit sharing ,producing up to 4000 m/w of cost effective power, imho seems they will be looking again at ways to push forward , phulbari stands out ,

Bangladeshi Australian Energy Professional Energy surplus, technologically advanced Australia can be ideal partner in progress for Bangladesh in its endeavor for achieving sustainable energy security. Bangladesh is in a mission for turning into mid income country by 2021 and developed nation by 2040.
Mining Own Coal For years Bangladesh suffers from dilemma in mining its own coal. Management of water, relocation and rehabilitation of mine affected community, managing environmental and social impacts are challenges. Australia is one of the leading countries of the world which has managed its coal resources very professionally. Top mining companies of the world are in operation in Australia. Top mining consultants are also in business in Australia. In such situation there are no reasons why Australia cannot be reliable partner of Bangladesh in assisting mining own coal resources adopting proven best practices. Imported Coal Fired Projects The power system mega plan embodies 50% reliance on coal for achieving a total of 40,000 MW power by 2030. The present contribution of coal in 2016 is merely 2%. Bangladesh power plant uses sub critical technology. Several large imported coal based power plants are at different stages of implementation at Maheskhali, Matarbari, Rampal, Payera and Bashkhali. Bangladesh requires a large group of competent technical and managerial officials for managing these coal projects manage coal terminals, operate these plants. Australian institutes can be of great assistance in training and capacity building for Bangladeshi officials. Australia does not have too many supercritical plants. But Australia has many well managed coal fired power plants which has very stringent safety and environment management standards.

Win. win should this happen hard to see how it will not happen bringing so much at the price of x rice production and reallocation. .for a set time period. Jobs. Land boom .local buisness created. Much need power production. Country growth .developed skills. PSC remains the key is my thinking it sells its self. Win for all. Hard to see how they will not implement this.
