By Rosina Islam
The CHT Land Commission ‘ordered’ the Ministry of CHT Affairs and the Land Ministry to start land survey within two weeks in the CHT. The notice served to these two ministries states, “This is final order of the Commission for starting land survey in the CHT. The breaking or violation of the order amounts to defamation of court and liable for punishment.” The notice further says, necessary legal action would be taken up if the order is dishonoured.
Ataharul Islam, Secretary to the Land Ministry says to the Prothom Alo, in response to a question, the Commission has no any authority to take any action against the officials of the ministry. This is not a court; this is a commission to resolve disputes. The duty of the commission is to resolve disputes.
On a question of the Prothom Alo, the MoCHTA Secretary Masud Ahmed says, "I received the notice of the Commission on last Monday. The survey is not our task; it falls within the jurisdiction of the Land Ministry. We have given all technical supports to the Commission and now it lies with the Land Ministry."
