Divisional Commissioner at the meeting of the management committee, the Divisional Commissioner to protect Kaptai Lake from illegal occupation and pollution Chittagong
Divisional Commissioner Abdul Mannan said that due to climate change, natural disasters and excessive rainfall, the water level in the Kaptai Lake has increased due to the loss of homes and crops in the surrounding areas including fisheries. Apart from this, Kaptai Lake is being polluted due to waste, industrial, hotel-restaurant and home-waste waste. The lake’s navigability and tradition are losing. Although there is a Harvester machine worth about 25 crores for cleanliness, but the Kaptai power division has not used it regularly, Kacharai has been tucked in other places except Kaptai Sadar area. Tourists can not travel to Kaptai to Rangamati Lake by engineers in the country and abroad because of poor quality. As a result, they are turning away from joy. Power Development Board (PDB) is in charge of the Kaptai dam. Despite having 432 officers and employees in the electricity division, they are not very sincere to protect the navigability of the lake. But due to technology, the work has become very easy. On the other side of the lake, many illegal houses and businesses were formed. The necessary mechanisms to identify these illegal occupants and bring them under the law The Parliamentary Committee of the concerned ministry will be notified. As well as those who are catching fish in the lake and artificially fishery, the lake’s natural environment and normal fisheries production will not be discounted. We have to retain the aesthetics, natural setting and hydroelectric power stations of Kaptai-Rangamati tourism. At the same time, the administration will have to take responsibility for spreading extensive publicity through leaflets, posters and banners of lake water drainage in Drejinghana and regularly evaluate the level of pollution by checking the lake water regularly to protect the Kaptai lake from the possession and pollution of any price. He said this at a meeting of the Advisory Committee of the Karnaphuli Lake (Kaptai Lake) in the Circuit House at 11am on Saturday. The Chittagong Divisional Commissioner organized the office of the meeting. He said that the power department will have to work to keep the water in the Karnaphuli water power plant at Kaptai to keep the power production going.

Keeping this in mind, you have to work sincerely.
