Leaders of National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Electricity and Port yesterday claimed that Asia Energy Corporation (AEC) is still hatching conspiracy centering the Phulbari coal mine through changing its name, says a press release.
In a statement of the National Committee, the leaders also said that AEC has changed its name on January 11 and the new name of AEC is Global Coal Management (GCM).
National Committee Member Secretary Anu Muhammad and Convener Engineer Sheikh Muhammad Shahidullah expressed deep concern over the new strategy of AEC and said GCM has already signed a contract with a tele-company as a part of its conspiracy.
At the face of people' upsurge against the AEC Phulbari coal mine project, BNP led four-party alliance government has been compelled to sign a contract for cancelling the project. But the alliance government did not cancel the project formally, they said, adding that taking this opportunity AEC is again hatching conspiracy.
They demanded formal cancellation of the AEC Phulbari project and urged the caretaker government to take stern actions against the AEC.
