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 organization

concerned, among others, were present at the function with Royanchhori

upazila chairman Chohai Mong Marmar in the chair.
