There were only 3 ADP included project in past 3 years. Now there are ongoing 14 and 20 more will be added next year. Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) areas developing at faster rate than ever, claims CHT Minister Bhir Bahadur Ushoishing. He added that, the peace agreement deniers are only spreading rumors. The agreement implementations are in the process, just facing a slow start.
Minister Ushoishing said these in his speech as the chief guest at the ‘Standing Inclusive Development of CHT’ project initiating ceremony at Shonargaon Hotel in Dhaka. Many prominent others were present. But, Obaydul Muktadir Chowdhury shared his concern about prolong CHT conflicts, for not seeing much of the Hill Tracts representatives at a development project of their own area.
Though, Minister Ushoishing promises that, indigenous hill-tracts people will greatly contribute to the PM’s Vision of 2021. They only need some betterment of economy, education & health facilities. He already sent a ‘Demand Note’ to the government mentioning such development necessities. But he complained that, lack of cooperation between the District & Upazilla councils, is lengthening the projects.
