Today Superintendent of Police and his all subordinate officials had no scope to take chairs. All were seen busy on streets and giving protocol to VIP’s.
The military, police and para-military personnel have been extra-ordinarily busy today to foil the UPDF’s programme. In all Upazilas of Rangamati and Khagarachari Hill Districts the administration was busy so that UPDF organisers could not organize their 12th year of its foundation. In Naniachar Upazila the organisers organised their programme on boats; the leaders gave their lectures from boat and the participants listened to them keeping them on boats. A media person associated with a national daily claims that Maha Ranjan Chakma, a UPDF leader from Jurochari was arrested today by the police.
