UPDF demands full CHT autonomy Our correspondent
The United People’s Democratic Front in a statement issued on the occasion of 12th founding anniversary of the organisation on Friday demanded full autonomy for the Chittagong Hill Tracts.

The UPDF president, Prasit Bikash Khisa, and the general secretary, Rabi Shangkar Chakma, urged the people of the CHT to wage a movement to push for the demand for full autonomy of the region.

They also demanded recognition of small ethnic groups living across the country and an end to all kinds of oppression on them.

Pointing finger at Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samiti, the leaders said more than 200 UPDF activists had been killed in 12 years and 500 were abducted. Many of the abducted became crippled as they were tortured by PCJSS activists.

They also referred to the ‘killing of Rui Khoi Marma by the army in 2009.’

The government also arrested more than 400 UPDF supporters without any allegations, they said.

The UPDF was formed in 1998 just after the signing the CHT accord in 1997. They rejected the CHT accord and formed the organisation.

The organisation will hold a number of rallies and conferences marking the founding anniversary which falls on December 26.
