CHT Land Commission creates controversy.
Without resolution of disputes the legal land owners cannot be identified.
The editorial clearly held the Bengali settlers as prime hindrance to the establishment of peace in the CHT and contradiction with the local hill-men lies with them. The editorial tells very clearly and loudly that the main business of the Land Commission is to give back the lands of the CHT hill-men which have been taken over. It opined that one-sided decision will not bring any success and the history of the CHT problem testifies it. The sub-title of the editorial says “Without resolution of disputes the legal land owners cannot be identified.”
