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.

Govt permitted to appeal against HC verdict

Dhaka, Mar 3 ( — The Appellate Division of Supreme Court has permitted the government to appeal against a High Court verdict which declared Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) Regional Council Act of 1998 unconstitutional.

The division on Thursday also upheld the stay order by the Supreme Court chamber judge on the High Court verdict.

On Apr 13 last year, the High Court declared the Chittagong Hill Tracts Regional Council Act of 1998 unconstitutional for violating the "sanctity of a unitary state".

The High Court had also ruled that it could not consider the constitutionality of the CHT peace accord.

It held that since the agreement was political in nature — 'an accord between belligerents' — it could not be judicially reviewed by the court.

The agreement was signed between the government of Bangladesh and Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity in 1997.

The petitioners who had challenged the legality of the accord, had argued that the court could consider whether or not the state had acted beyond its authority in executing the accord, notwithstanding the fact that the issue had political undertones.
