Chattogram Bureau :
Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Friday said certain NGOs from home and abroad are behind halting of the Rohingya repatriation.Speaking at a religious gathering marking Jannmashtami at JM Sen Hall  in the port city   on Sunday evening, Dr Hasan said an alliance of NGOs in a statement on August 22 claimed there was no conducive environment in Myanmar for the repatriation.
It is true that there is lack of trust among the Rohingya people but instigations by certain NGOs are visible for stalling the repatriation process, he said."We hope that the repartition must commence soon as the government has been pursuing all diplomatic efforts at the highest level, he said. The information minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given shelter to over 11 lakh Rohingya refugees  on a humanitarian ground.
The socio-cultural and ecological environment has badly been affected in Ukhia and Teknaf due to influx of a huge number of Rohingyas," he said. Dr Hasan said the Rohingya refugees are now committing various criminal acts including peddling of Yaba tablets.
 Presided over by Janmastami Udjapon Parishad Vice President Babul Gosh, the function was addressed, among others, by Raozan Poura  Mayor Debashis Palit, parishad leaders Advocate Chandon Talukder, Rakhal Das Gupto, Ratnakar Das Tunu, Ashok Kumar Chatterjee and Advocate Tapan Kumar Das.
