The Murung, one of the most disadvantaged indigenous groups in the CHT with a total population of about 12,000, are protesting the project that will displace several hundred indigenous families in Bandaran Hill district. The Murung protested it at Pankhu Para, an area in Bandaran on 15 February 2005. The parks have been planned to be built in Sadar, Roangchhari, Ruma and Lama regions.
