Assam : As 52 Bangladeshis get deported, 40 lakh potential illegal immigrants identified today

A day before the final draft of the National Registry for Citizenship (NRC) list was published, a total of 52 illegal Bangladeshis were reportedly deported back to Bangladesh. According to reports, the 52 persons were evicted near the Manakachar sector near the Assam-Meghalaya- Bangladesh trijunction area.

As per reports, the 52 deported people were all ‘convicted foreigners’. The NRC data had listed foreigners after they had failed the citizenship test and termed so by the Foreigners’ Tribunal. Many such declared foreigners have been kept in six detention camps across the state.

Anticipating possible law and order situations, section 144 has reportedly been implemented in seven sensitive districts in the state and any gathering of four or more persons has been also prohibited. The last draft of 1.9 crore applicants was released in December 2017. State government officials have reported that with help from the centre being provided, they are ready to tackle any law and order situations. The superintendent of police in the South Salamar mankachar region have stated that all the 52 persons had entered the Indian side illegally and had been arrested over a period time from across different regions in the state, He had added that the government helped them get in touch with the Bangladeshi high commissioner for the travel permit.

Assam was scheduled to release the final draft of the NRC list today at 10 am. Home Minister Rajnath Singh had stated a few days back that people need not worry about the list as it is a draft list only and those failed to make it to the list, can reapply with their objections and claims within 30 days. The list is finally out and set to be available online and also will be displayed across the 2500 Nagrik Seva Kendras.

According to the NRC list, of the total 3 crores 29 lakh population of Assam, 40 lakh have not made their way to the NRC list that pegs them as illegal immigrants.

The NRC listing and its execution are being monitored by the Supreme Court and as per its rule, people who had entered the state after 24 March 1971 and their descendants will be declared ‘illegal immigrants” in the absence of due citizenship documents.

As preparatory measures in the case of an unrest, 220 additional companies of the central paramilitary forces with 22,000 personnel have been deployed in the state.

Opposition political parties have issued inflammatory statements over the issue and even blamed the BJP government of communal discrimination. But the state government and even the Army Chief have asserted repeatedly that illegal immigrants do pose a threat to the demographic and security of the country.
