Implement CHT accord through talks: Inu

Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu on Friday urged the government and the Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJSS) to implement the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) peace accord by settling the disputes through discussion.

"New generation wants ensuring of development and peace . . . there is no alternative to talks to resolve the existing problems in the hilly regions," he said while addressing a discussion on "Development of Chittagong Hill Tracts: Problems and Possibilities" on the occasion of the 40th founding anniversary of Chittagong Hill Tracts Development Board (CHTDB) in the auditorium of CHTDB.

Terming the CHT problems as a national issue, he underscored the need for framing of a separate law and formation of a national commission for the ethnic monitories for execution of the CHT peace accord.

The information minister said that Begum Khaleda Zia and communal forces and militant outfits patronised by her are hatching conspiracies to foil the CHT peace accord signed on December 2, 1997, ending two-decades-long unrest in the hilly region. He urged all patriotic people to forge a unity to work against communal and fanatic forces under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

State Minister for CHT Affairs Bir Bahadur Usoi Shing, Chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on CHT Affairs Ministry RAM Obaidul Moktadir Chowdhury addressed the discussion with CHTDB chairman and CHT Affairs Secretary Naba Bikram Kishore Tripura presiding.

Among others, Feroza Begum Chinu, MP, Kujendra Lal Tripura, MP, Rangamati Army Brigade Commander Sanaul Haque, Rangamati Zila Parishad Chairman Brisketu Chakma and Khagrachhari Zila Parishad Chairman Kongjori Chowdhury were also present on the occasion, according to BSS. - Idrak
