Saving rivers, canals: Strict enforcement of law demanded

Staff Correspondent: Speakers at a seminar on Saturday said most of the rivers and canals around the capital have been grabbed and filled up with wastes polluting them dangerously. Constant dumping of untreated and under treated toxic materials by industrial enterprises including textile mills and tanneries and solid municipal wastes into the rivers and canals have been posing a serious threat to the lives of millions of people of Dhaka city, they said. They expressed this concern over the ecological degradation while speaking at the 53rd annual general meeting and seminar of Bangladesh Geographical Society (BGS).

The seminar on “the growth of capital Dhaka and its environment” was held at the Senate Bhaban of Dhaka University (DU). BGS president Prof AQM Mahbub presided over the seminar while Law minister barrister Shafique Ahmed was present the function as the chief guest and DU Pro Vice-chancellor Prof Harun-or-Rashid as the special guest. Prof Nurul Islam Nazem presented the key note paper on the occasion.

Speakers said Dhaka occupies strategic location at the centre of the country through a network and connectivity of rivers and canals. The advantage of river system in and around the capital gave it a location opportunity to thrive as a mega city, they noted. They demanded strict enforcement of law to punish the grabbers and stop disposal of wastes into rivers and canals.Otherwise, the future of the capital would be fraught with ecological disaster, they warned. Prof Rosie M. Ahsan, Prof M Shahidul Islam, Prof Naznin Afrose Huq addressed the function.
