Residents of IDP camps say their rations have been slashed this month.
Camp authorities have told them the decision to slash rations have been taken by international organisations as aid to Rohingyas have dried up.
Rohingyas say aid to the community has been higher than normal times as sympathies pour in for the beleaguered people in light of the publicity caused by the migrant crisis. But much of the aid given to the Rohingyas end up in government coffers.
IDPs say even in normal times, the ration is not enough. Many Rohingyas in the IDP camps, including children go hungry.
Now they are slashed, it makes it very difficult for them.
The displaced Rohingyas are not allowed outside the boundaries of their camps and have no access to a livelihood. Under such circumstances, the meagre rations are the only lifeline.
Living conditions in the IDP camps are among the worst in the world, according to international NGOs.
The displaced people blame camp authorities for withholding rations.
