The Rohingyas will be relocated there before August, Secretary Mohammad Shah Kamal says

Disaster Management and Relief secretary Mohammad Shah Kamal has said 100,000 Rohingyas, who have taken shelter in Bangladesh amid persecution in Myanmar, will be relocated to Bhashan Char of Hatiya upazila in Noakhali within two months.

The secretary made the announcement while addressing the inaugural function of a disaster management drill organized under the supervision of Bangladesh Army at Balukhali camp in Cox’s Bazar’s Ukhiya upazila on Saturday.

The secretary said that all the preparations have been completed and the Rohingyas will be relocated there before August.

“After transferring the Rohingyas to Bhashan Char, the natural environment will be restored,” Kamal added.

Earlier on November 14, 2017, the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (Ecnec) approved a Tk2,312.15 crore project for giving temporary shelter to Rohingyas at Bhashan Char.

The Ecnec approved the project titled “Ashrayan-3” for construction of necessary infrastructure for the housing of 100,000 displaced Myanmar citizens, and construction of island infrastructure at Bhashan Char.
