Full implementation of CHT accord demanded

A Correspondent, Rangamati

Speakers at a council yesterday demanded full implementation of Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) peace agreement.They said nearly eight years have elapsed after the signing of the historic accord but the vital clauses of the deal still remain unimplemented.

The 13th council of Pahari Chhatra Parishad (PCP), a front organisation of Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJSS), began at the Shilpakala Academy in the district town.

The speakers said their struggle would continue until their right to self-determination is established.

They said they will never allow the cancellation of the landmark accord achieved at the cost of blood given by the ethnic people in two decades of bush war.

The speakers alleged that indigenous women are being raped by the settlers as part of a deep-rooted conspiracy.

They said the government is also hatching a conspiracy against the jummo people to make them refugee by grabbing their land.

The speakers demanded an end to “military rule” in CHT, stopping of land grabbing and intrusion of outsiders in the region.

“The people and land in CHT belong to this country. So the government should not see them in discriminatory eyes,” said Dr Abu Yousuf Alam, professor of Chittagong University while addressing the council as chief guest at the inaugural session.

PCJSS Central Committee Secretary Laxmi Prasad Chakma inaugurated the council.

It was also addressed, among others, by PCJSS Central Secretary Satyabir Dewan, PCP Central Secretary Binotamoy Dhamai and President Ujjal Chakma, CHT Mahila Samity Chairperson Madhabi Lata Chakma, CHT Regional Council member Ushatan Talukder and Advocate Shaktiman Chakma.

Later, a procession was brought out from Shilpakala Academy to municipality office where the council was held at its auditorium.
