LaRouche active in Bangladesh

In New York in February 1975, LaRouche announced his first candidacy for President of the United States centered around an initial effort to affect the plight of Bangladesh through one of the greatest potential engineering projects available in the world: the development of the potentials of the Himalayan water system. He called for emergency development aid for Bangladesh to integrate immediate projects of water-management and agricultural development with the initiation of a large-scale development program for the water system of the subcontinent as a whole.
