Govt takes firm stance against armed activities in CHT: Quader

Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the government has taken strict stance against terrorist activities prevailing in Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT).

The minister said this while speaking at an Eid gift distribution ceremony at Manik Mia Avenue in the capital on Friday morning.

The AL general secretary said a small ethnic group has started some armed activities in the CHT. This ethnic group is not found in Rangamati and Khagrachari, but it is only found in Bandarban.

Hoping that the situation will get normal soon, Quader said there is no reason to think that the entire CHT will be in turmoil due to the armed activities of these ethic people.

Metrorail is a special service of public transport. People are getting benefit from it. I don't know who suddenly gave such announcement before any high-level decision of the government is taken, he said.

AL publicity and publication secretary Dr Abdus Sobhan Golap, executive president of Awami Matsyajibi League Saiful Alam Manik and its general secretary Sheikh Azgar Naskar also spoke at the function with Awami Matsyajibi League president Saidur Rahman in the chair.
