GUWAHATI, June 7 � Reminding Prime Minister Narendra Modi of his promise made during the election campaign about making the State free from illegal migrants, the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad has asked the Central Government to include this issue in its 100-day agenda.
The youth body would submit a demand charter with 10,00,000 signatures that would incorporate other crucial issues including sealing of the Indo-Bangla border and updating the NRC.
Addressing the media here, AJYCP president Manoj Baruah said that the rapid demographic changes in the State are not just a threat to the existence of the indigenous people, but also a major concern for the national security.
�With a strong demand to incorporate this issue in his agenda, we would submit a representation to the Prime Minister within next week,� he said.
The Parishad also expressed concern over the existing system of deporting the detected illegal migrants by just pushing them across the border. It demanded that Modi take up the issue with his Bangladeshi counterpart during his visit to the country and chalk out a fool-proof plan for deporting the Bangladeshi citizens entering the country illegally.
Criticizing the State Government for its failure to start NRC update work, Baruah said the work should be started simultaneously throughout the State.
