The indigenous people are in a critical situation in terms of human rights abuses, Parbatya Chattogram Jana Sanghati Samity Chairman Santu Larma said yesterday.
Parbatya Chattogram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJSS) Chairman Jyotirindra Bodhipriya Larma, also known as Santu Larma, yesterday said the upcoming parliamentary election meant little to the country's indigenous people because of bitter experiences in the past.
Jyotirindra Bodhipriya Larma, popularly known as Santu Larma, yesterday alleged that the government did not take effective steps to implement the fundamental aspects of the Chittagong Hill Tracts Peace Accord even 20 years after its signing.
Indigenous community leader Jyotirindra Bodhipriya Larma comes down heavily on the government saying that thousands of people from the minority communities are sinking under the high tide of country’s “so-called development”.
The daylong blockade enforced by Parbatya Chhatragram Janasanghati Samity (PCJSS-Santu Larma) in Rangamati protesting the rigging in municipality polls is going on peacefully.
Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity will hold a rally on Dec 2 from where it will announce its next court of action to realise its demand for implementing Chittagong Hill Tracts Peace Accord.
