Media reports about delisting of the East Kolkata Wetlands as Ramsar site is a matter of concern not only to the people of Kolkata but also for the nation as a whole. It is the lung of Kolkata.
It is providing innumerable environmental services to the people of greater Kolkata and it is a national pride. This wetland subsidises the city of Kolkata ecologically making it the cheapest metropolitan city in India. This waste treatment and recycling ecosystem, based on community knowledge is the only one in the whole world. You are an environment friendly Chief Minister, meaningful conservation of this Ramsar wetland site need your attention as the custodian of this national heritage.
Of course KMC can ask for compensation for purchasing land to dump garbage because it cannot any more do it in Dhapa to protect a Ramsar site.
We are concerned about the future uncertainty of east Kolkata wetlands and we are sure it will remain protected under your kind care. After all it involves life of about 100000 poor people who live there with no security of their livelihood.
