Meanwhile, Professor Anu Muhammad, general secretary, National Committee to protect oil, gas and mineral resources, power and port on Monday said, "How a minister can refuse the proposal of shutting the riverine route (Shela River) after an oil-tanker sank there spilling 350,000 litres of furnace oil causing a great threat to the ecology of the country". "Although Ministry of Environment and Forests closed the route temporarily after the accident, Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan refused the recommendation recommend by environment ministry to shut down Sundarbans Shela River route permanently", he added. "Khan fears, the Mongla Port will become ineffective if the Shela route is shut down", Anu referred while marking the Khan's quotation as farcical. The comments came up while Anu was addressing a press conference on Monday noon at paltan to protect Sundarban. While terming the recent incident in Sundarban as great threat for the ecological sight of the country, he said "Many trees and animals with aquatic in Sundarbans are in disasters and risk. Besides, the locals have been passing days with livelihood problem as well as an indirect threat to lives". Anu said, "Some ill-minded people who are in opposition to the recommendation, want to use the forest land, river route, aiming to build a power plant". "The government must expand the helping hand to the distressed by providing compensation from the government" he demanded.

DHAKA: Renowned writer, researcher and activist Rahnuma Ahmed asks who is a ‘foreign agent’, Anu Muhammad, member-secretary of the National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Ports, or Dr. Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury, advisor to the Prime Minister on energy affairs?
...
Dr Hasan Mahmud told lawmakers, Anu Muhammad is a ‘foreign agent,’ and that the Oil and gas Committee was formed by `tokais` (street urchins) after the committee called a half-day hartal on July 3 in protest against the deal inked between the government and the US-based company ConocoPhillips for offshore oil and gas exploration.
...
Did the WikiLeaked cables revealed from Dhaka`s US embassy last December name Anu Muhammad, or did it name the prime minister`s energy adviser Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury? Who did the US ambassador James Moriarty tell to award offshore gas blocks to ConocoPhillips, to Anu Muhammad, or to Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury?
...
Who obliged accordingly, Anu Muhammad, or Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury?

The only document that we, members of the public, have access to, is the production sharing contract (PSC model 2008), which Anu Muhammad, member secretary, National Committee, is quick to point out, was designed during the caretaker government and was uploaded on the net to facilitate international bidding. Not to elicit comments or suggestions from members of the public. Does secrecy over contracts not lend credence to B D Rahmatullah's accusation that the power crisis has been manufactured, has been `artificially created' to push through anti-people power projects like rental power plants? There is reason to take his word for it, he was former director-general of the Power Cell. `Our engineers,' he says, `are willing to sell their country just for a ticket abroad' (Budhbar, August 18, 2010).

Prof Anu Muhammad of Jahangirnagar University said," In every research it has been proved that implementation of the Rampal project would lead to an environmental and humanitarian crisis in the Southwest region.
"I hope the prime ministers of both the countries [Bangladesh and India] would agree on cancelling the Rampal power plant [project] to save the environment of the region and announce their decision to cancel the project now," he said.
...
Speaking on the occasion, Prof Anu Muhammad, Professor of Economics at Jahangirnagar University, said that the government should make public the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) study on the Rampal project to dispel doubts over the project. The Sundarbans have protected the people of the coastal region of Bangladesh and India for many years. "No plan which will hurt the livelihood of the people of the area should be implemented. I urge our Prime Minister to discuss the issue with her Indian counterpart during his visit," said Prof Muhammad.
...
Eminent economist Prof Anu Muhammad said that the project near the Sundarban would not only destroy the world's largest mangrove forest but also trigger drought in the southern part of Bangladesh.
Referring to the cyclones Sidr and Aila in 2007-2009, Prof Muhammad said both the governments should realize that during the natural calamities, the coastal part of Bangladesh and West Bengal of India could be totally destroyed. But it did not happen as the Sundarban put up a barrier and protected vast areas from the disasters.
"Both of the government should terminate the Rampal coal fired power plant in the greater interest of the country. This power plant will ruin the ecological and biodiversity of the Sundarban. And we have to keep in mind that when Sundarban will face any difficulty Bangladesh's southern part and Indian's West Bengal will not remain safe from adverse impacts," said Prof Muhammad, also member-secretary of the National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Ports.
Clarifying a recent statement of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he noted that PM had observed that all environmentalists and experts were against the project because of India's involvement.
