The main concept of Saving Sundarbans is the closure down of Rampal Power Plant. The Rampal power plant can have a hazardous effect over the natural environment of Sundarbans. The government, until now, is establishing the India-Bangladesh joint venture 1,320 Mega Watt coal-fired power plants. This is a 14 kilometers upstream of the Sundarbans Reserve Forest (SRF). A world heritage site acknowledged by UNESCO is the natural beauty of Sundarbans.
International constitutional rights bodies, state organizations and many others have tried but failed to convince the Bangladesh government of for the safety of the ecosystem the forest contains. Professor Anu stated about the Rampal project that it is a “project of mass destruction of the forest life”. The wildlife and the green fauna will be completely devastated due to the reason of this.
It is high time that our government must take steps for the preservation of this world’s most precious site. They must set the Rampal project to some other sites where no wildlife or no living creatures of the ecosystem balance and diversity gets harmed. Our wildlife King Royal Bengal tiger must be saved from possible extinction.
