Water Resources Secretary Kabir Bin Anwar said that the impact on bio-diversity and society due to implementation of development activities must be considered.

“Any project must not be taken which threatens natural resources… No project would be fruitful that harms bio-diversity,” said Kabir, reports BSS.
