The matter started when WFP’s volunteers refused to pay total ration amount to Rohingya refugees and reduced 370 taka from their total amount (770 taka) at camp no. 24, 25, 26 and 27, because after reducing Rohingya refugees’ ration amount it becomes impossible to survive for them.

Now Rohingya refugees demanded to fulfill their valid demands and said they will no longer receive reduced rations until their demands are met.
