BANDARBAN: Minister for Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) Affairs Bir Bahadur Ushwe Sing on Saturday urged all for stopping environmental degradation to avert both human-induced and natural disasters, reports BSS.

“A section of people is involved in environmental degradations including cutting hills, trees and lifting stones, which is eventually causing human-made and natural disasters in CHT region,” he told at the relief distribution function Royangchhori upazila parishad in Bandarban district.
