GUWAHATI, March 1 - The Assam Sanmilita Mahasangha has sent a memorandum to United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the issue of demographic changes taking place in Assam under the impact of massive infiltration of foreign nationals from the neighbouring countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal in the post Yandaboo Treaty period, which was signed by the British East India Company and the then King of Ava on February 24, 1826.
According to a press release issued by the Mahasangha here today, in the memorandum, it has narrated as to how the massive infiltration from these countries has posed a serious threat to the existence of the indigenous peoples of Assam. The influx of foreign nationals from Bangladesh and Nepal has still been going on to this part of the world, stated the memorandum.
Moreover, there is a tacit move to grant Indian citizenship to the illegal migrants from these countries through the update of the National Register of Citizens (NRC), said the Mahasangha in its memorandum to the UN Secretary General.
It has also pleaded for UN interference in these matters.
