Chittagong Hill Tracts: Move to make CHT Regional Council Effective
The decision was taken yesterday at a meeting held at Dhaka with the Deputy Minister for Chittagong Hill Tracts Affair Moni Swapan Dewan in the chair.
This was first such coordination meeting of the Regional Council and three Hill Tracts District Councils held during the tenure of the BNP-led Four-party alliance government.
The meeting discussed the lack of coordination of work between the Hill District Councils and the Regional Council.
Chairman of the Hill tract Regional Council and leader of Janasanghati Samity Sontu Larma said that the peace treaty was signed in 1997 but rules for the Chittagong Hill Tracts Regional Council were yet to be framed.
Moni Swapon Dewan said that they have decided to make the rules of the Regional Council and the Hill District Council laws effective. A coordination meeting of these Councils will be held once every two months, he said, BBC reported last night.
