Own Correspondent, Dhaka, 6 April 2024: The government is taking a strict stance on the armed activities of the Chittagong Hill Tracts. There is a joint operation going on. The situation will calm down soon. Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said this at the Eid gift distribution ceremony of Fishermen's League at Manik Mia Avenue in the capital on Friday (April 5).

The minister said that a small ethnic group has started some armed activities in Chittagong Hill Tracts. This small ethnic group is not found in Rangamati, Khagrachari. Only in Bandarban. Some youths of this small ethnic group are practicing with weapons. Law and order forces are conducting a joint operation in this regard. Hope the situation calms down soon. There is no reason to think that the entire hill country will be disturbed by this armed activity of this small tribe.

Expressing anger at the news of increase in metro rail fares, the minister said, suddenly 15 percent VAT on metro rail fares will be increased from July, we do not know anything about who made this announcement. I will discuss this with the Prime Minister. Public transport is a special service Metrorail. People are benefiting from it. I do not know who suddenly gave such news before any decision was taken at the high level of the government.

General Secretary of Awami League said that today some parties in Bangladesh have failed to prevent the elections, failed in the movement. They said the government could not hold elections, they could not prevent it. The election is over. Then he said that the five-day government will not last. It has been three months since January 7. BNP now has nothing to do but sigh. They have destroyed democracy. And Sheikh Hasina has freed democracy from discipline.
