Ensuring rights of ethnic minorities stressed

BSS

RAJSHAHI: Development activists and academics at a discussion stressed the need for protecting the rights and developing the livelihood conditions of ethnic minorities living in the country’s northwest region, reports BSS. They said the ethnic people were always deprived of land rights, food, healthcare, education and cultural facilities, so the government should take effective steps to ensure their rights apart from meeting their other demands.

The discussion was arranged on Shahmukhdum Degree College premises in the city, marking the silver jubilee celebration of Jatiya Adibashi Parishad (JAP). JAP chief adviser and convener of parliamentary caucus on ethnic minority affairs Fazley Hossain Badsha, MP, addressed the discussion as the chief guest while writer Prof Hassan Azizul Haque opened the celebration programme.

Chaired by JAP central committee president Rabindra Nath Saren, the meeting was addressed, among others, by principal of the college Rejaul Islam, JAP advisers Rafiqul Islam Piarul and Ashoke Sarker, and JAP leaders Bimal Chandra Rajoad, Bichitra Tirky and Andriash Biswas. Badsha called for freeing the ethnic communities from the vicious cycle of poverty to make them fit for all the nation-building activities.

He said importance should be given on protecting the underprivileged people from all sort of deceptions.

Badsha underscored for establishing social justice towards the plain land ethnic communities through removing all sorts of disparity. To mark the celebration, the JAP and its other front organisations earlier jointly brought out a colourful rally which paraded different roads.
