Rampal power plant will obviously have adverse effects on the Sundarbans. There are many rare species that are already on the verge of extinction. Building a power plant near the Sundarbans would only worsen the situation. Moreover, local people would be
exposed to respiratory and other fatal diseases due to the air pollution caused by the coal-fired power plant.
We expect our government to act wisely in this regard.
