New leadership

Contact us:

PCJSS/JSS key persons:
Sudha Sindhu Khisa, President/ Rupayan Dewan, Vice President,/Tatindra Lal Chakma, General Secretary/. Responsibility shouldered on 11 July 2013.

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.

Reader lauds New Age editorial

New Age, Dhaka, Letters:
3 Sept 2012

Recognition appreciated

I am writing to thank the editor for their timely and very positive editorial ‘Recognition of non-Bengali nationalities a pre-condition for CHT peace’ (New Age: 30/9/2012). The government has signed a peace accord, which is itself a recognition of some issues that requires resolution. But if the peace accord is not implemented to the satisfaction of the non-Bengali minority people, then why was this accord signed? Who will answer this question? 

The editorial has rightly pointed out that non-compliance of some major components of the accord have caused other problems which many people consider serious and severe.

Finally, I hope for and expect similar support to the causes of other minority communities - I am referring specifically to the Urdu-speaking Bangladeshis, who, by all definitions, do not stand as Bengalis but as non-Bengalis. After being legally recognized as citizens of Bangladesh, they have been languishing in camps like refugees since 1971.
