Bangladesh in final phase to resettle Rohingya

Bangladesh is in the final phase to relocate 100,000 Rohingya refugees to a remote islet amid fears from the Myanmar’s persecuted community that they might be washed away in bad weather conditions.

The Bangladesh Navy’s implementation of the project, under the Prime Minister’s Office at an estimated budget of BDT 23.12 billion (over $280 million), is likely to be completed by 2019.

The huge project on Bhasan Char Island has been fully funded by the Bangladesh government.

The islet, whose name means “floating island”, emerged from the Bay of Bengal in 2006 and is about 30 km (21 miles) from the mainland.

No journalists, workers of non-governmental organizations or any outsiders -- not involved with the project -- are allowed to visit the island.

The construction of almost all 1,440 mega housing settlements has been completed. Each settlement comprises 16 rooms, six toilets, four bathrooms and eight gas stoves.

Inside each family room, there are two double-decker single bedsteads with the bedding facility for a total of 92,160 people.

Every family will have a ceiling fan in their rooms, as well as a gas stove for cooking.
