Dist councils of Bandarban, Rangamati reconstituted

The government has reconstituted the Rangamati and Bandarban Hill District Councils.
The government, however, did not bring any change to the Khagrachhari Hill District Council as a case is pending with the High Court in this connection.
The CHT affairs ministry yesterday in separate fax messages dismissed the previous interim councils formed during the past caretaker government.
Our Rangamati correspondent reports: A five-member council was formed with district AL leader Nikhil Kumar Chakma as the chairman of Rangamati Hill District Council.
Four other members of the council are Aungsui Prue Chowdhury, Shamima Rashid, Brishaketu Chakma and Avilash Tangchangya.
Our Bandarban correspondent adds: Ka Shoilah Marma was made the chairman of Bandarban Hill District council. The members of the council are Kazi Mujibur Rahman, Prasna Kanti Tangchangya, Kew Sa Prue and Aung Prue Murang.
Ka Shoilah Marma was also the chairman of Bandarban Hill District Council in 1996-2001.
The previous interim councils were recast on July 15 in 2007.
