Menon: Ghost spirit prevails in CHT

Update : 11 Dec 2015, 06:54 PM

Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon said land disputes in the country’s hilly region have not yet been settled as there is a ghost spirit prevailing.

He made this statement yesterday in the morning while delivering speech at a seminar organised to mark the International Mountain Day.  

In association with some development organisations, the Ministry of Chittagong Hill Tracts Affairs held the seminar.

A three-day Mountain Fair was also organised on the Hill Tracts Complex premises near Baily Road on the occasion. 

At the seminar held in the capital’s CIRDAP Auditorium, Rashed Khan Menon said: “The question of peace is important if we want to develop the hill tracts area and its people. But it will remain a far cry until land disputes prevail there.” 

He said the amendment to Land Dispute Resolution Bill 2013 Act has been gyrating in the parliament for a long time. 

“Speaking from the experiences, we had made the similar decision in the standing committee meeting and even our PM and indigenous leaders had agreed to amend the bill,” he stated.

The inaugural of the seminar which was a part of the three-day-long programme was attended by Ministry of Chittagong Hill Tracts Affairs Secretary Naba Bikram Kishore Tripura and State Minister for CHT Affairs Bir Bahadur Ushwe Sing.
