Let the Dead River Flow
For hundreds of years the Buriganga has been continuously abused by unplanned urbanisation and unsupervised industrialisation. The onslaught of the resultant pollution has virtually killed the once mighty river. It carries only wastewater during the seven months of the dry season: even during the wet season no aquatic animal can survive in the water. Throughout the year, those who live near the river and thousands of others who travel through Sadarghat suffer because of the foul smell that the dying river emanates. Urgent actions need to be taken to save the Buriganga.
