The APFEJ, in a statement issued by its chairman Quamrul Islam Chowdhury from its head office in Dhaka, cautioned that 'if the government at Beijing diverts some volume of water from Brahmaputra, Bangladesh will be severely affected, as the saline water of Bay of Bengal will enter south Bangladesh and destroy the aquatic life and agricultural field'.
As a member of APFEJ, I stress to my colleagues that when they cover agricultural stories, they need to seek other angles--both positive and negative--that touch on environmental issues.
