 AK Abdul Momen said that foreign aid agencies are opposing the government’s scheme of relocating the Rohingya refugee to Bhasan Char as the officials’ can no longer enjoy the luxury hotel facilities in Cox’s Bazar and have to shift to Bhasan Char which doesn’t meet their expectations of a convenient relocation, reports UNB, TBS. Momen disclosed that the agencies cited communication and transport issues which can be solved with the abundant fund they have.  He further added that Bhasan Char will provide the refugees with opportunities like economic activities such as fishing, cattle farming and agricultural activities similar to the livelihood they led at Rakhine State.  “Rohingya crisis is not our problem, it’s a global problem.
