Md. Shamim Hossain –

Khulna Cargo ship MV Shahjalal Express, which sank in Pasur river of Mongla port, was rescued after 26 days. It was not possible to pick up even the drops of manure mixed with water. The sunken cargo ship was salvaged by Khanjahan Ali Salvage Enterprises of Mongal. Abul Kalam Chowdhury, the owner of Khanjahan Ali Salvage Enterprise, said that the cargo ship loaded with fertilizer, which sunk in anchorage area No. 8 of Harbaria in Pasur Channel of Mongla port, was recovered on Sunday 26 days after the accident. The ship is kept afloat by sealing with iron warrope and tying buoys on both sides. After that, the ship was floated and kept on Monday morning in Pasur River behind Inspector Bangla Parijat of Port Authority. From here it will be taken to the dockyard in Khulna, he said. Azhar Siddique Badsha, the owner of the cargo ship, said that on January 24, when a foreign ship loaded with fertilizer from anchorage number 9 of Harbaria left for Khulna, it collided with another foreign ship in anchorage number 8 due to thick fog and heavy current on the way. The cargo sank. The port authority then set a deadline of February 19 to lift the cargo. During that time we were able to salvage the vessel through local salvage. But all fertilizers dissolve in water.

Four harmful heavy metals were found in broiler chickens in Khulna.
Md. Shamim Hossain –
Khulna Four harmful heavy metals were found in broiler chickens in Khulna. This metal enters the body of the chicken from food. Many people are constantly eating without knowing. These heavy metals in excess are harmful to the human body. These images have emerged in the study of environmental science discipline of Khulna University. Doctors have advised not to eat half-cooked chicken in this condition. Tashrif Ahmed, an honors final year student of environmental science discipline of Khulna University, recently conducted a research titled ‘Assessment of Heavy Metals in Broiler Chicken and Its Source Trucking in Khulna City Corporation Area’ under the supervision of teachers. For that research, he bought broiler chickens from Sandhya Bazar, Rupsa Ghat, Boyra Bazar, Newmarket Raw Market and Nirala Bazar in the city and took them to the lab. He then studied the meat and bones of broiler chickens in the lab. Citing the study, Tashrif Ahmed said, the World Health Organization’s approved level of heavy metal nickel is 0.5 mg per kg. But 128 mg was found in meat and 79 mg in bone. Although the permissible level of chromium is 1 mg, 12.5 mg was found in meat and 10.45 mg in bone. Although the permissible level of lead is 0.1 mg, 18.52 mg was found in meat and 3.72 mg in bone. Although the permissible level of arsenic is 0.1 mg, 0.43 mg was found in meat and 0.37 mg in bone. The student collected poultry feed (chicken food) of 15 companies from Barabazar and some other places and tested it in the lab. It can be seen that the level of nickel per kg is 1.93 mg, the level of chromium is 60.58 mg and the level of lead is 5.86 mg. Tashrif Ahmed said that the permissible level of lead in poultry feed is 0.05 mg. But found much more. The agency has not issued any permissible levels of nickel and chromium. And he failed the arsenic test. He said, later there is a plan to research the amount of heavy metals in the food prepared with broiler chicken in different hotels and restaurants. Environmental Science Discipline Head Professor of Khulna University. Abdullah Harun Chowdhury said, various types of food including soup, stew, burger, chicken fries made from broiler chicken are sold in hotels and restaurants. Many people eat this chicken at home. As a result, there is a risk of heavy metal entering their body. He said, feeding poultry feed mainly made from tannery waste is getting excessive amounts of 4 metals into chickens. The matter needs to be monitored by the concerned authorities. In this regard, the civil surgeon of Khulna. Sujat Ahmed said, broiler chicken is half boiled and some dishes are prepared. Eating them is dangerous for the human body. However, if broiler chicken is well boiled, fried or cooked then there is no risk. That is why he advised not to eat half-cooked meat to avoid health risks.
The people of Koyra are dreaming anew to overcome the disaster damage.
Md. Shamim Hossain –
Khulna Centenarian Durgapad Munda of Nalpara village in coastal Koyra upazila of Khulna is still shocked by the painful memories of stormy Aila, Ampan, Yash. He said that during the calamity, his homestead, toilet and side roads were submerged in the salty water of the river. It was not possible to reach the shelter through the sunken road. Had to take refuge in the loft of the house. They had to wait for the low tide of the river to complete the work of the toilet. Sakar Munda of the same village said that because the tubewell was submerged in the saline water of the river due to the dam breaking in the disaster, water had to be fetched from a distant tubewell by boat. However, to reduce the suffering of the people of Koira during the calamity, the non-governmental organization Jagrat Jubo Sangh (JJS) has laid about 10 km of roads, 125 deep tube wells, construction of 27 elevated toilets and rainwater storage tanks in 14 cyclone shelters in Koira Sadar, North Bedkashi and South Bedkashi Unions. Expressing satisfaction with this, the people of Koira are dreaming of overcoming the salt water wounds of the disaster to some extent. The residents of Nalpara village of the upazila said that the way the private company JJS has constructed elevated roads, tube wells and toilets, at least the residents will not have to wait for a toilet in case of any disaster. Sheikh Sohrab Hossain, UP Member of Ward No. 5 of Koira Sadar Union, said that what was not possible for a long time, that non-governmental organization has completed in just two years. In this way, they hope that if the government as well as non-governmental organizations come forward, the residents of the disaster-prone coastal Koira will be able to adapt themselves to any storm and flood. Rabiul Islam, a resident of village No. 3 Koira said, the road next to our house was very low in the fire. Earlier, the road used to get submerged due to rising water in houses during calamities. Along with the family members, cattle had to be taken care of. Now by raising the side road, at least the road can be on the road during the calamity. Livestock can also be kept. Shahadat Hossain, Acting Superintendent of Koira Madinabad Dakhil Madrasa, said that the Jagrat Jubo Sangh has arranged for the installation of raised toilets, elevated tube wells and rainwater conservation in his Madrasa. Apart from students, local residents are also benefiting from this. North Bedkashi and South Bedkashi Unions of Koira were inundated by the brackish water of the river for about three and a half years in Ghurnijhar Aila. Residents said that they had to live in huts on the road during floods. Then the toilets flushed. People were forced to toilet in the open. Women had to wait for the night to complete their toilet work. Now they don’t have to face that problem in any calamity due to raising the toilet. Alhaj Sardar Nurul Islam Company, chairman of North Bedkashi Union, said, “We are very satisfied with the quality of all the works. Trees have also been planted on both sides of the road for stability. Now if brick soling is given over it the roads will be more durable. He appealed to JJS to extend the duration of the project and do some more developmental work. ATM Zakir Hossain, executive director of Jagrat Jubo Sangh, said, “We have seen women and children suffer indescribably during natural disasters. The people of Koira have a unique experience especially with the toilet system. Due to the lack of roads, many people cannot go to shelters even if they want to during disasters. For these reasons we have elevated some roads, toilets and tube wells. Abdul Malek, coordinator of JS, said, “We have renovated about 10 km of roads in Koira Sadar, North Bedkashi and South Bedkashi Unions. One crore 15 lakh 54 thousand 882 taka has been spent for this. Besides, 125 tubewells, 27 raised toilets and 14 shelters have been set up with rainwater storage tanks and basins in three unions. Also, 4,51 Neem, Mahogany and Siris trees have been planted along the road of about six and a half kilometers.
