News No.145/2015: Friday, September 11, 2015
THE army on Thursday foiled a rally in Mahalchari organized by the Hill Students’ Council, better known by its Bengali acronym PCP, a front organization of the United Peoples’ Democratic Front (UPDF).
The PCP had planned the rally to demand implementation of its education-related five point demands including the right to primary education in ethnic peoples’ languages in the CHT.
Sources in the PCP told chtnews.com that when the students were preparing to attend the rally the army personnel held them back.
Later, the PCP held a brief rally at Master Para and slammed the army for preventing its supporters from attending the rally.
They also called for the government to introduce primary education in ethnic peoples’ languages.----------------
