Demand for compensation to landless people in Noakhali and prevention of river erosion

Mujahidul Islam Sohail, Noakhali Correspondent :: More than 600 landless men and women in Hatia and Subarnachar of Noakhali have joined hands to demand compensation for the construction of embankment and action against it.

The human chain was held in front of Noakhali Press Club on Monday (February 15) at 11:30 am.

The families affected by the human chain said that in 2017, the CDSP evicted the landless in Nalerchar, Caring Char and Charnagaliya and built an embankment through the Water Development Board. It was said that the price would be three times more than the price of the surrounding mouzas. But after four long years, the CDSP and the Water Development Board did not pay any compensation.

They also said that they are in a lot of trouble with their son and daughter. On the one hand, they are being displaced due to river erosion. On the other hand, they have been re-evicted by barricading themselves on the land they own. They demanded compensation for the land and effective measures to prevent rapid erosion.

During this time, more than 600 landless people including Noakhali’s Subarnachar and Hatia Water Management Federation President Abdul Malek Faraiji, members Shahe Alam, Md. Sumir and Ariful Islam participated in human chain and rallies.
