FFs demand govt allowance

At least 15 freedom fighters (FFs) on Saturday demanded government allowances at Laxmichhari upazila town. Local Muktijuddho commander Khandaker Abdul Wahab at a press briefing claimed only one FF (Dharmacharon Chakma) was selected for government allowance from the upazila. But there are 15 more FFs in Laxmichhari upazila, who fought against Pakistan occupation forces during the liberation war. They are in distress and unable to maintain their families now, Wahab said urging the government to grant allowance for and save their families. Freedom fighters Sahidul Islam, Milon Mia, Fazlul Haque, Nurul Islam, Hashem Mollah, Zahur Howlader, Fazlul Rahman, Nur Muhammad, Abdul Khaleq, Dharma Charon Chakma, Anil Mohajan, Subash Das, Haider Ali and Mokbul Alam were present.
