Background: The present central committee was elected on 11 July 2013, on the 2nd day of the 3-day long 10th PCJSS national conference. The earlier committee (convening committee) was formed on 10th April 2010 when Mr. Santu Larma convened the 9th national conference (29-31 March 2010) in sheer violation of the party constitution and excluded a few hundred veteran leaders and members and also "formally" expelled 7 top veteran leaders (Chandra Sekhar Chakma, Sudhasindhu Khisa, Rupayan Dewan, Tatindra Lal Chakma, Eng. Mrinal Kanti Tripura, Advocate Shaktiman Chakma and Binoy Krishna Khisa) and also declared their capital punishment. The present leadership is determined to democratise the JSS under a collective leadership.

Harmony between mainstream and ethnic minority sought

Harmony between mainstream and ethnic minority sought

Speakers at a book launching ceremony On Wednesday said permanent peace would be established in the Chittagong Hill Tracts if the mainstream people and ethnic minority groups work together.

The speakers, who included government officials, educationists and NGO activists, also said the government should end the controversy over our nationality through the amendment of the constitution.

They were speaking at the launching of ‘Between ashes and hope: Chittagong Hill Tracts in the blind spot of Bangladesh Nationalism’, edited by Naeem Mohaiemen.

Manusher Jonno Foundation and Drishtipat Writers’ Collective jointly organised the function at WVA auditorium in the city.

National Human Rights Commission member Nirupa Dewan said the CHT peace treaty in 1997 is under various complexities including conflicts over land ownership which should be resolved.

She also said the NHRC has plans to work for the ethnic people of CHT and help them solve their problems.

Chakma circle chief Devasish Roy said the government’s recent initiative to amend the constitution will help the ethnic minority groups to find their position in the mainstream nationality.

Chairing the function, MJF’s executive director Shaheen Anam said the movement for the rights of ethnic minority groups should not be an ‘event-based movement’ sparked temporarily.
