Jatiya Gano Front on Sunday demanded that India agrees to a fair sharing of the waters of 54 common rivers with Bangladesh.

The party raised the demand at a press conference at National Press Club addressed by its coordinator Tipu Biswas.

Tipu called upon progressive democratic forces of the country to launch movement against what he said India’s unfair treatment of Bangladesh in sharing the common rivers, including Teesta.

Jatiyo Gano Front central leaders Hasibur Rahman Hasib, Rajot Huda, Abu Taher and Biplobi Chhatra Moitri President Salman Rahman, among others, attended the press conference.
