Armed activities of Kuki-Chin an isolated incident: Quader

Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the armed activities of Kuki-Chin in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) are a sporadic incident, while the government has taken a cautious and rigid stance to this end.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, made the remarks while speaking at a press conference at the AL president's Dhanmondi political office in the capital on Sunday.

“Kuki-Chin will not be able to create unrest in the whole CHT. The government has taken a strong stance. This is an isolated incident. Overall peace in the hills will not be disturbed,” he said.

He said the home minister has visited the CHT area and a joint operation is going on there. 

“BNP is looking for issues to conceal its failure. After failing in Myanmar issue, now BNP is capitalising on Kuki-Chin issue. This is an isolated incident. This will not impact the overall peace situation in the hills. So finding a new issue about it, BNP will fail too,” the AL general secretary said.

Claiming that BNP does not have the capacity to wage a movement, he said the BNP has lost all its energy as its leaders and activities are disappointed with the leadership of the party. 

AL Organising Secretaries BM Mozammel Haque, Mirza Azam and Sujit Roy Nandi, Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua and Deputy Office Secretary Sayem Khan were, among others, present at the press conference.
