Population register will regularise Bangla migrants

By Spl correspondent

NEW DELHI, June 3 � Raising alarm over the manner of preparation of National Population Register (NPR), Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Thursday claimed that after completion of the exercise, statistically, there might be no illegal Bangladeshi migrants left in India.

�We are the only country in the world, which gives them ration cards, subsidised food, passports, driving licences, credit cards, voter identity cards and now citizenship and in addition, the Unique Identity Card (UID). After this, statistically, there will be no Bangladeshis in India! VHP�s state media coordinator, Vinod Bansal claimed.

Protesting the manner of preparation of the NPR, Bansal claimed that inclusion of the names of illegal Bangladesh migrants would have serious implications. The VHP leader today said the NPR might list more then two crore infiltrators as nationals of India based on their own declaration.

And moreover, after the NPR is built, the infiltrators will get identity cards with Unique Identification Number (UID) from the Unique Identification Authority of India, like genuine citizens of the country. It must be stopped, Bansal demanded.

According to a study, the infiltration has hugely distorted the demography of many areas in Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Mizoram, Nagaland, Manipur, and even in far off Mumbai and Delhi, he claimed.

Giving an interesting twist, he claimed that Assam Government has incurred an expenditure of Rs 1.80 lakh per head to deport 1,864 illegal Bangladeshi migrants and going by the rate it might cost Rs 36 lakh crore to deport two crore illegal migrants over 64,278 years period!

It is interesting to note what other countries do to those who cross their borders illegally. North Korea sends them to 12 years� hard labour; Iran detains them indefinitely; in Afghanistan, they are shot; in Saudi Arabia, they are jailed; in China they may never be seen again; Canada jails them for three years and France, for five years; Venezuela brands them as spies and seals their fate; Mexico and Cuba too jail them, stated Bansal.

Compare, what India does to the two crore Bangladeshis, who have stealthily crossed into India. For an example, between January 2001 and September 2006, the Assam Government spent Rs 170 crore to identify 9,149 Bangladeshis, but deported only 1,864 to Bangladesh � that is, it took six years to deport 1,864 Bangladeshis, at Rs 1,80,000 per head!

At that rate, it may take 64,278 years and cost Rs 36 lakh crore to deport the two crore Bangladeshis! He alleged.

The Bangladeshi population in India is more than the total population of some 100 countries taken together!

The two crore plus illegal Bangladeshis in India are almost equal the population of Australia or Sri Lanka. The individual population of 167 countries is less than the number of Bangladeshis in India!
