BSS, Bandarban :
Minister for Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) Affairs Bir Bahadur Ushwe Sing on Friday urged all for stopping environmental degradation to avert both human-induced and natural disasters. "A section of people is involved in environmental degradations including cutting hills, trees and lifting stones, which is eventually causing human-made and natural disasters in CHT region," he told at the relief distribution function Royangchhori upazila parishad in Bandarban district.
A total of 50 flood-hit families were given cash money at the function as part of their rehabilitation programme.
Bir Bahadur said, "We have to intensify monitoring in the CHT region for maintaining ecological balance through stopping any harmful practices related to environment." Officials of local administration and representatives of organisation concerned, among others, were present at the function with Royanchhori upazila chairman Chohai Mong Marmar in the chair.
