Around a hundred families have moved out of Lomburi village near Bahar chera town in Cox’s Bazar after receiving threats from local politicians and authorities.
Currently these families are residing in flimsy shelters provided by their employers in their homesteads and surrounding areas. The employers are boat owners who need the Rohingyas for deep sea fishing.
Rohingya workers work at a cheaper rater than their Bangladeshi counterparts. While employers generally the cheaper labour, this has raised tensions among the local workforce in the region.
The remaining households have been told to clear out thus creating an uncertain future for these Rohingyas thus creating an uncertain future for them.
Earlier Rohingya families in nearby Shaplapur have also been told to leave.
The evacuation comes as the government has undertaken a road to be built through these areas.
In Bangladesh, even citizens rarely get rehabilitation facilities when they are evacuated.
