Bangladesh Hindu Buddha Christian Oikya Parisad Wednesday sought Prime Minister's intervention for further amendment to the proposed bill on Vested Property Return Act, 2001, reports BSS.
"The new proposed bill tabled in the Jatiya Sangsad on December 7, 2010 is not at all acceptable to us as it is more anti-people than the previous proposed bill," said Advocate Subrata Chowdhury, one of the presidium members of the Parisad, while addressing a press conference held at the city's Dhaka Reporters’ Unity.
He alleged that a vested quarter was engaged to foil the entire process to enact new law to settle the issue forever.
"We still believe that the PM wants to resolve the problem considering the seven-point unanimous proposal placed by the Parisad, but an interested quarter is continuously obstructing the move with ill motives," Mr Chowdhury added.
He said the PM has asked to send the bill to the Standing Committee on land ministry to make it acceptable by bringing necessary amendments.
"We are eagerly waiting and also appealing to the persons concerned to amend the bill in the light of seven points unanimous proposal," he urged.
Leaders of the Parisad Anil Chandra Nath, CR Sarker, Joyanta Deb, Tapas Paul, Milan Dutta and Nirmal Chattarjee were, among others, present on the occasion.
