Hi, This is my first post since January and I wanted to know if this story is true. If yes please give a source because it it quite upsetting to hear that it is proposed to be built on a rice paddy field which is going to be a downhill step to eradicate poverty which still exists in areas. It is however exciting if it is true.

just returned from Cox'sbazar. I actually enquired about it. Initial site was close to the beach but shocked to learn that it was moved Ukhia - middle of nowhere to satisfy the ego of local MP - Salahuddin Ahmed. So the story (which I did not read, but assuming from your post) is probably true.

Is it going to be an international stadium?

We will not become self sufficient with the rice of an stadium area. A stadium could generate more money than the paddy field.

In BD every land is either a paddy field/graveyeard/Residence/market. Where is empty land for a stadium, except in the mountains of BB?

The guy who raised the point in the newspaper must be having a different interest. After all he has a pati buddhijibi identity of Lal/neel/Holud party.

I sincerely hope this is going to be a fast track if the stadium goes through because practically thats the one thing we need and need it sooner rather than later!
