Within just six months of the oil tanker incident that devastated the Sundarbans, another vessel, MV Java Lemur, carrying Muriate of Potash, a fertiliser, sank in Bhola River near Shoronkhola of Bagerhat on Tuesday. Although the forest officials say the fertiliser is harmless to the mangrove forest, the incident sheds lignt on the urgent necessity for putting a complete ban on plying of cargo vessels through the endengered forest , a long standing demand of the environmental activists which has been facing a persistent reluctance of the authorities concerned.
