Centre should detect and deport Bangladeshi infiltrators: RSS
Chennai: Holding that Bangladeshi infiltrators have spread all over the country, RSS on Saturday demanded the Centre and state governments take steps to check the border, detect and deport them.
"If they (infiltrators) have got citizenship rights or other rights, they should be deprived. And ultimately, they should be deported... Central government should check the border...," RSS All India Joint Secretary, Krishna Gopal said.
Briefing reporters on the second day proceedings of the RSS National Executive Council meeting, he said "unabated influx" of infiltrators, who had settled not only in Assam but all over the country, was a "serious threat" to national integration.
To a query whether the situation was any better during NDA rule, he said that "during the NDA government, fencing programme was going on better. And Mr Advani (then Deputy Prime Minister) had also issued orders to fence all the borders."
A resolution passed at the meet on the city outskirts condemned the July 2012 ethnic violence in Assam, alleging it was migrant Bangaldeshi Muslims who had perpetrated it.
"RSS strongly condemns the violence perpetrated by Bangladeshi Muslim infiltrators in Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri districts of Assam, the violent demonstrations organised in various parts of the country and the conspiracy to terrorize the people of North-East living in different parts of the country to flee from their places," it said.
These were `serious challenge` to the country, it added.
Holding that these `infiltrators` had settled in large numbers in four districts of Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD), it said they had "vitiated the social, cultural, natural, economic, religious and political environment over there with far reaching consequences."
The resolution decried attempts to portray the Assam incidents in particular and Bangladeshi infiltrators? issue in general as a Muslim issue.
Efforts were on to give a communal colour to the essentially "natives-versus-foreigners" issue, the resolution said.
Bangladeshi `infiltrators` were disturbing the demographic balance and posing a serious threat to the security of the country by indulging in various "objectionable and illegal acts", it charged.
They were involved in circulation of fake currency, illegal trade of arms, drugs and cattle smuggling and several other criminal acts besides becoming a tool in the hands of the ISI, the resolution alleged.
It also demanded that the work of fencing the Bangladesh border be completed without delay. "The National Register of Citizens should be completed systematically".
"Patriotic citizens should treat the issue as a national problem and play an active role in detecting these infiltrators... And also to keep in mind that engaging the infiltrators in any work is not only illegal but also a grave danger to the country," it said.
