UPDF participates in 10th parliamentary elections

The Party fielded its President, Prasit Bikash Khisha, in Khagrachari constituency and gained second position with 67,700 votes. However, the vote was marked by rigging and manipulations. In many polling centres in Matirnga, Manikchari and Ramgarh Upazilas, the polling agents of Prasit Khisha were forced to leave, with Awami League goons taking full control of these centres.

Road blockade to protest BGB attack in Babuchara

The half-day road blockade programme was called by UPDF-affiliated organizations to protest the brutal attack on Jumma protesters by BGB in Babuchara of Dighinala upazila. The blockade was largely peaceful, barring some stray incidents. In Khagrachari Gate and Petrol Pump areas, the police fired rubber bullets and tear gas on the pickets, who were peaceful. They also arrested a 20-year old man, Chai Thoai Marma, from Jamtola in Manikchari, while the army in Guimara picked up a class ten student named Joni Tripura, 15. No inter-district and long distance buses plied during the blockade.
