History says landlord Kali Poddar Babu in 1840 took the initiative to build a road from Jessore to Kolkata so that his mother could travel to take a bath in the Ganges river. A lot of saplings were planted on both sides of the road thinking of a way to make journeys of passers-by pleasant, as instructed by the landlord's mother.
The 140 kilometers road covers 70 kilometers from Kaliganj to Beanpole part in Bangladesh.
The trees were witnesses to the country's Liberation War.
Thousands of people as refugees passed though the road in 1971. The allied forces also came by this road, the project work could be done without cutting down the trees.
“If there is less oxygen in the atmosphere, it would have a negative impact on the environment,”
We strongly protest the decision of Roads and highway department of cutting down 2700 old trees.
