1. The most serious problem facing India is the presence of crores of Bangladeshi infiltrators. Vide its judgment dated July 12, 2005, Supreme Court termed Bangladeshi infiltration as “external aggression” and directed that “Bangladeshi nationals who have trespassed into Assam or are living in other parts of the country have no legal right of any kind to remain in India and they are liable to be deported.”
2. It is shocking that BJP and its leaders have forgotten their pre-election speeches of deporting crores of Bangladeshi infiltrators.
3. Instead of implementing the Supreme Court’s judgments dated July 12, 2005 and December 5, 2006 to deport crores of Bangladeshi infiltrators, on her recent visit to Bangladesh, External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj reportedly announced that India would extend multiple-entry visas for Bangladeshi citizens under 13 and over 65 years of age from the present one year to five years. Besides, India has proposed to increase the frequency of Maitree Express (Dhaka – Kolkata train), and has also proposed a bus service connecting Guwahati, Shillong and Dhaka.
4. All the above-mentioned measures proposed by BJP government would open more floodgates for more Bangladeshis to infiltrate and colonize India.
5. Tragically, India is being grabbed bit by bit by Pak-Bangla terrorists and infiltrators every day. Nationalists must strongly oppose BJP’s infiltrator-friendly policy, and force it to reverse the same.
