Declare Halda nat'l river

Speakers urge govt

Speakers at a discussion yesterday urged the government to declare Halda, one of the world's major natural sweet water fish breeding spots, as the national river.
Riverine People organised the discussion at Chittagong University (CU) Central Students' Union building on the campus marking the World River Day.
They said being a riverine country there is no national river in our country, so Halda should be declared as the national river of Bangladesh.
Halda river experts Assistant Prof Md Monjurul Kibria and Lecturer Md Atikur Rahman spoke at the discussion.
