Bangladesh government keep vigil on 6 indigenous NG0s in CHT

The government in a meeting held at home ministry in May took decision to keep intensive vigil on 6 NG0s formed by indigenous people in CHT. Home ministry sent a letter to government officials for the purpose. The NG0s were-

  1. Trinamul
  2. Zabarang
  3. Taungya
  4. Centre for Indigenous People's Development (CIPD)
  5. Integrated Multiplex Development Organisation (INWO)
  6. Hill Tracts NGO Forum (HTNF)

The government falsely accused the NGOs of making anti‑Bengali sentiment among the indigenous people. The Association of the Development Agencies in Bangladesh (ADAB), HTNF and concerned NG0s protested it stating that it was against the spirit of CHT Accord.
