 Bangladesh Nodi Bachao Andolon (Movement to protect rivers of Bangladesh) demanded determining the actual number of rivers and disclosing the list of the river polluters, reports Manab Zamin.
 The platform also demanded including China and Nepal into the Joint River Commission for ensuring fair share of water in the upstream.
The platform made the urge after issuing a media release yesterday.
 According to the media release, the government and non-government organizations and experts could not reach a consensus as to the exact number of the rivers in the country. It’s a shame for a riparian country like Bangladesh. According to the government organizations, there are 230 rivers.  According to Wikipedia, there are 405 rivers. As per the encyclopedia of Shishu Academy, there are 700 rivers.
