Guwahati, June 3: The North East Students Organization (NESO) and All Assam Students Union (AASU) have sent separate letters to Prime Minister rendra Modi urging him to take up with the Hasi government the issue of illegal migration from Bangladesh.
Modi will be embarking on a two-day visit to Dhaka beginning Saturday.
In their letters, the student bodies said unless there is a bilateral pact with the neighbouring country, it would be difficult to deport the “huge number of illegal Bangladeshi tiols” who have infiltrated into the states of the Northeast illegally.
“It has been one year since you assumed office. We are eagerly waiting to hear from you as to when the illegal Bangladeshi tiols who have entered India after 1971 will be deported,” the organizations told Modi, adding that the Northeast will not take the burden of these illegal migrants.
They said that in the past many political leaders from India had visited Bangladesh, but the “real issues concerning Assam and the Northeast” have not been taken up with the government of the neighbouring country in the right earnest.
“Even recently, Exterl Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj had visited Dhaka. However, the people of Northeast were not informed if the issue of illegal migration was taken up with the Hasi government during the visit,” they said.
