    Good to know that Government has waived stamp duty for the construction of 1320 megawatts thermal (MWt) power plant at Payra in Patuakhali. The project will be implemented by BCPCL. So Anu Md. and gong can’t say any more that govt. is favoring India for Rampal power project.
    They should learn the fact that Govt. rule is applicable for all.
    They should not blindly oppose India for Rampal issue.

    Thanks to Government for nice decision.
    I would call Oil Gas Committee to shut down all valueless propaganda against Rampal Project.
    Anu Bhai is not teaching or researching as he should, rather creating confusions among the countrymen on good works of the government.
    Anu Bhai, onek hoache ebar pls stop koren ei sab andolon.
    Apni valo thakun, sarker ke valo kaje cooperate korun.
