India may deploy army here: Bangladeshi leader,
A senior opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) leader has said India may deploy its army in Bangladesh in the name of guarding its power corridor.
Gayeshwar Chandra Roy, a BNP standing committee member, made the insinuation Sunday while speaking at a human chain, bdnews24.com reported Monday.
The demonstration was held in front of the National Press Club, Dhaka, in protest against the government’s decision to give a power corridor to India
Roy said the power transmission lines that will link northeastern and northwestern parts of India through Bangladesh will "waste 4,500 bighas of land".
“Then India will say their infrastructure needs to be protected by their own forces. This way they will take away our independence,” he was quoted as saying.
