Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday is going to inaugurate Swapner Thikana, a rehabilitation project for those affected due to the land acquisition for the 1,320MW coal-fired power plant at Kolapara upazila of Patuakhali.
Power Cell Director General Mohammed Hossain said all the steps required have been taken for the project launching ceremony.
Through the premier opening the project, the affected landowners will be able to live in their new desired address.
The project is adjacent to the site of the power plant, he said, adding, “It is a complete and modern project where a school, a mosque, a community centre, a playground and other civic amenities are available.”
The project will be deemed a role model for other countries of the world, opines the chief of the Power Cell which works under the Power Division.
The prime minister will hand over a key to each of the affected families during the inaugural programme.
Bangladesh-China Power Company Limited, a joint venture of the North-West Power Generation Company Limited (Bangladesh) and China National Machinery Import and Export Corporation, is constructing the power plant. Officials of the power plant expect that it will start power generation from May 2019.
