BJP-PDP illegally settling, sheltering Rohingyas, Bangladeshis in Jammu: Harsh

JAMMU: Flaying the delay and deny tactics of the government to evict Rohingyas and Bangladeshis from Dogra soil, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former minister, said that the so called Group of Ministers (GoM) constituted by the State Government for the purpose of deportation of the foreign immigrants to their respective countries had proved an ‘eye wash’.

He rued that the recent incidents of purchase of immovable property in and around Jammu and Samba Districts besides encroachment of State lands by them had posed a demographic threat to Jammu Pradesh with people up in arms against the hypocrisy of BJP-PDP leaders.
He was addressing a press conference in Jammu today.

Raising question mark on the credibility and the intentions of the Coalition Government, Harsh regretted that ever since the GoM was constituted to curb the soaring population of Rohingyas in and around Jammu city and devise a strategy for their eviction, no concrete action had been taken until now by the aforesaid group which was set up on the directives of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs.

He divulged that the GoI was forced to take the step in the wake of strong mass movement spearheaded by Panthers Party besides civil society demanding their immediate deportation to native countries. “The much hyped Group of four Cabinet Ministers headed by Dy CM Nirmal Singh had only proved a mere window dressing to befool the people at large. It seemed that its constitution by the sinister alliance had a motive behind to quell the public uprising against the unlawful settlement of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis in Duggar land”, Harsh said.

He said that once again the directives from GoI had failed to elicit any response from the sinister BJP-PDP combine and no minister had issued any statement until now over the matter of serious concern.

“Ethnic cleansing in Kashmir on communal lines, attempts to change the nomenclature of Hindu shrines and places, imposition of Kashmiri language on Jammu people and over and above the unlawful settlement of immigrants in the City of Temples was undoubtedly manipulative with serious portends. The criminal silence of the alliance and BJP in particular over the illegal settlement of foreign nationals vindicated the dangerous intentions of the dispensation to reduce Dogras to minority”, Harsh added. He said that since these foreign nationals had already been identified in Jammu city and its adjacent peripheries, GoI must act promptly to simply deport them to their native countries without any further delay.
