Detect, deport illegal migrants: AASU

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 17 - As the Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju admitted the presence of two crore Bangladeshi nationals in the country, the Central and State Governments should take immediate steps to detect and deport the foreigners living in India, demanded the All Assam Students� Union (AASU).

The AASU said the State government should take immediate steps for expediting the process of detection of foreigners living in Assam and they should be kept in the detention centres. On its part, the Centre should take up the matter with the Bangladesh Government to deport the Bangladeshi nationals identified in India. Only declaration of the number of Bangladeshi nationals in India will not help in solving the problem and immediate steps must be taken to effectively deal with the problem. Moreover, the Centre should withdraw the Citizenship Amendment Bill immediately considering the gravity of the situation, the AASU demanded. It said that the statement by the Union Minister once again proved that the people of Assam were fighting for a just cause since the Assam agitation days. Even the Supreme Court, while scrapping the Illegal Migrants (Determination by Tribunals) Act, expressed the view that Assam was facing external aggression due to illegal migration, which caused internal disturbance. The Supreme Court, in another judgment, directed the Govt of India to take up the issue with Bangladesh. The Centre should follow the directive of the apex court immediately, the AASU said. It further said that considering the presence of such a large number of foreigners in the country, adequate care should be taken to ensure that no foreigner can include his or her name in the National Register of Citizens (NRC) with fake documents. The AASU also pointed out that there is an urgent need to guard the international border to prevent fake infiltration and demanded that the State government create a second line of defence to seal the border.
