Demanding reconstruction of Banshbaria Dam, representatives from 20 local organizations and members of Youth Leaders Forum (YPSA-Leadership Development Program) joined their hands to form a human chain along Dhaka-Chittagong Highway near Banshbaria Union Parishad, Sitakund.
This step was taken by Chairman of Banshbaria Union Parishad with the assistance of youth and community leaders along with local community. This campaign was coordinated by Mr. Abdus Sabur and Mr. Mizanur Rahman Chowdhury from Leadership Development Program (LDP), YPSA.
Hundreds of people stood in line from 9.00 am to 11.00 am to make a human chain. More than 30 LDP leaders were present displaying various banners and play cards to raise voice for reconstruction of Banshbaria Dam prior to rainy season to protect lives, settlement and agriculture.
There are about 1.5 km long dyke located at Banshbaria Union. Most of the parts of this dyke are unprotected and being destroyed. Due to cyclone and tidal surge in monsoon season, most of these areas are flooded and washout by saline water.
