  1. There is no answers about 'how' to stop the fatricidal conflict. What and how the mass people can do something to stop the conflict? What are the roots of conflicts? You should give the mass people the idea how they can contribute to this efforts.

  2. In response to the comment posted by an anonymous responder on 13th at 7:40 AM:

    Your valued comment has highly been welcomed by our leadership. According to us, the Jumma people hold the mightiest power to force the political quarters who are not ready to comply with the reality. The reality is to immediately stop conflicts and establish a greater Jumma unity, for the interest of the CHT accord implementation and for establishing Jumma rights.

    Major Political changes can be achieved with the direct participation of the mass people. In our recent meetings the local community leaderships are appreciating the concept of Jumma conflict management and are expressing their positive gesture.

    There is nothing to think that there is no role to be played by the mass people to stop the ongoing fierce conflicts.

    On 11th instant we sought support from the people for greater Jumma unity for peace and achieving Jumma rights by defusing Jumma conflicts at a meeting at Babuchara and the same day Mr. Santu Larma declared to annihilate other parties for achieving Jumma rights in Thega. One side wants peace while the other wants blood. In this warring situation if the mass people shoulder the responsibility, then peace can return without heavy losses. Our report posted on 13th instant could be appreciated.

  3. i personally gone through many SWOT analysis of CHT !! finally i found " Dream should be closer to the reality !!"

    all the very best !!!!

  4. Mr. Adong Chakma, a CHT development activist strongly recommends the following to stop the CHT internal killings. His idea/recommendation may kindly be appreciated.

    The new JSS led by the new leadership strongly believes that CHT will bleed unless there is a strong social voice involving Jumma masses against the ongoing political killings.

    To save the innocent people from killings and the movement for CHT Accord implementation all the Jummas and their friends in Bangladesh and beyond should raise their voice against the political autocracy in the CHT.

    Our JSS' new leadership is committed for greater Jumma unity and a strong democratic JSS led by a collective leadership, against the autocratic leadership active within JSS since 1983.
