Census to help aliens: BJP

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, May 24 � Member of Parliament and BJP national vice president Bijoya Chakravorty on Monday stated that the census work that is going on in the State without updating the NRC will prove costly to the integrity of the State and to the existence of the indigenous people.

Addressing media persons here, Chakravorty warned that thousands of people of dubious citizenship are being covered by the census and will be given an identity card which will make it easy for these doubtful citizens to enter their names in the voters list. She said that the foreigners issue was already a vexed one and the ongoing census will further compound matters.

�Everyone coming to Assam is being included in the census and this is greatly favouring the illegal migrants from Bangladesh,� said Chakravorty, adding that presence of illegal Bangladeshis has already changed the demography of the State and the inclusion of more doubtful names in the census will change the map of Assam.

Chakravorty regretted that till 2009, 14,072 illegal migrants were identified and 123 were expelled through incurring an expenditure of Rs 41 crore. �To expel one foreigner, the government had to incur the expenditure of Rs 23 lakh,� said Chakravorty.

On the other hand Chakravorty referring to the State�s border dispute with its neighbours said that the Tarun Gogoi government was not taking a strong stand regarding the issue. She reminded Gogoi that the people of the State have not given their mandate twice to the Congress to relinquish land on the State�s border. �Assam is giving away land wherever its neighbours have succeeded in encroaching,� said Chakravorty demanding of the government to reclaim land grabbed by Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram.

Hitting out further at the Congress, Chakravorty said that the Tarun Gogoi govenrment�s favourite slogan of development was an attempt to hide the real picture�that of unchecked corruption, deteriorating road condition in the entire State, skyrocketing price rise of all essential commodities including food grain and starvation. She alleged that not even 50 per cent roads were completed in the State under the Prime Minister�s Gramin Sadak Yojana.

Chakravorty also demanded that the government should make public how much was spent in celebrating its fourth year in office.
