CHATTOGRAM, Dec 28, 2020 (BSS) – Information Minister Dr Hasan
Mahmud today said conspirators are still active to destroy the
prevailing peace in Chattogram Hill Tracts (CHT) region along with
destroying the peace of the country as well.

“Those, who are not happy with the development and peace of the
country, are also not happy with the development, progress and peace
of the hill tracks region,” he said and urged all to remain alert
against the conspirators.

The minister stated these while inaugurating ‘Bangabandhu Tour the
CHT Mountain Bike’ competition at Sajek Valley in Baghaichhari upazila

Bangabandhu.

Dighinala upazila Chairman Abul Kashem, among others, addressed the
function as special guests with CHT affairs ministry secretary
Shafiqul Ahmed in the chair.

Hasan said the previous governments especially BNP and Ershad
didn’t take any initiative for the peace agreement when they were in
power.

“But Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina signed the
peace accord and implementing it. Many refugees, who fled the country
due to unrest, have also been repatriated. Those who went astray have
returned to normal life. This was possible due to the earnest efforts
of the premier,” he added.

The information minister said the scenario of whole CHT region has
been changed and the government is very much earnest for overall
development of the region, said Hasan, also Awami League joint general

He said there is huge potentiality for tourism in the hill tracts
region and the potentiality of tourism of the area will be highlighted

The country will move forward if the potentiality of tourism can be
utilized in a well-planned and environment-friendly management, he
added.

commemorate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the minister said none but cyclists can express
the satisfaction of cycling in the beautifully decorated Sajek Valley.

Recalling his student’s life, Hasan said, “When I was a student, I
used to ride my bicycle to and from university. I am a cycling fan
myself and I regularly participate in various bicycle rallies in Dhaka
city with various demands and environmental protection.”

He said that there is no alternative to practicing cultural and
sports activities including cycling to keep away the youths from drugs
and other violent acts.
