Urging to take back Rohingyas to save the natural balance of Cox’s Bazar, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said we gave shelter to about 1.1 million Rohingyas from Myanmar for humanitarian reasons.

“But due to them, Cox’s Bazar is losing its ecological balance. So I would like to call for taking them back quickly,” she made the remark while addressing at the International Climate Conference at capital’s Hotel InterContinental on Wednesday. 

“Everyone will have to come forward to avoid the adverse effects of climate change,” said Prime Minister mentioning every droplet of water as very valuable. 

Describing the importance of rainwater, she said, “We are focusing on preserving rainwater to meet the demand of water.”

Meanwhile, about 7 lakh Rohingya refugees took shelter in Bangladesh to get rid of the atrocities by Myanmar military on August 25, according to the December 2017 estimation. 

Over 3.5 lakh Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh since the past three decades due to the violent torture of the Myanmar government.
