Eventually after many administrative formalities, the Patrol Boat of Buriganga Riverkeeper is going get the permission for anchoring and patrolling in the river Buriganga.
In this process, Buriganga Riverkeeper along with other community leaders met the Port Officer, Sadarghat Landing Port, BIWTA Mr. Mohammad Ali and visited probable sites for anchoring. During the meeting the activity of Buriganga Riverkeeper was also discussed.
At the same day Buriganga Riverkeeper visited the dockyard where the Patrol Boat is ready to be launched.
After getting the formal letter from BIWTA, we will run the boat for testing immediately. Upon successful testing, we hope to fix the date of Launching within the first week of October 2011.
Buriganga Riverkeeper, Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon (BAPA) and Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) will jointly organize the Patrol Boat Launching event.
We expect large number of people, professionals, civil society representatives, academicians and policymakers to be present in the event. The event will be held at the Main Lobby of Sadarghat Launch terminal, Dhaka.
