GUWAHATI, May 10: The All Assam Students Union (AASU) on Sunday stated that illegal Bangladeshis living in the State may take advantage of the three social security schemes - Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yoja, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Yoja and Atal Pension Yoja - launched by Prime Minister rendra Modi at Kolkata on Saturday.

In a statement issued to media here, the AASU said the Central government should have taken some protective measures before launching these three new schemes so that no illegal Bangladeshis can take its undue advantage.

“When will the rendra Modi government seal the porous Indo-Bangla border? When will the Central government hand over all illegal Bangladeshis staying in Assam to Dhaka on the basis of the Assam Accord?” the AASU questioned.

The AASU stated that large-scale infiltration into Assam from across the intertiol border is still going on and both the Central and State governments haven’t taken any concrete measures to prevent it.

“When the Jan Dhan Scheme was launched by the Central government, we wrote a letter to the Prime Minister and urged him to take measures so that no illegal Bangladeshis take the undue advantage of the scheme, but he did not reply to our letter,” stated AASU president Dipanka Kr th and general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi.
