BJP’s Assam Chief Sarbananda Sonowal told the Deccan Chronicle that he had a meeting with MoS Home Kiren Rijiju, where he raised the issue of “flushing out illegal immigrants from Assam”.
“The campaign will be initiated by the youth wing of the party within next 15 days. In the first phase of the campaign, we will appeal to illegal immigrants to leave our land voluntarily in next 15 days. We will also launch a house-to-house campaign urging people not to engage the immigrants in any kind of work,” BJP’s Jorhat MP Kamahya Prasad Tasha told the Deccan Chronicle.
In fact, at election campaign rallies in the run up to the Lok Sabha polls, BJP’s then PM candidate and now Prime Minister Narendra Modi had slammed the state government over the immigrants issue. He had said that if elected to power, his government would take action against illegal immigrants as they were robbing the country’s youth of their livelihood. “You are concerned about infiltrators and not your own people… they must go back, they are robbing the youths of India of their livelihood,” Modi had said at a rally in West Bengal during the election campaign.But independent reporters said that reality is completely opposite.

Modi had also charged the Assam government of killing rhinos in the Kaziranga National Park to ‘make space for illegal immigrants’ from Bangladesh. “Those who are conspiring to finish of rhinos, they should listen to this carefully. After May 16, they will be taken to task one by one(chun chun ke hisab liya jayega),” he had said. “Aren’t Rhinos the pride of Assam? But reporters Guwahati said that Mr Sonowal completly misguiding the media and reality of migrant issue. [ Ref source : The Myth of the Bangladeshi and Violence in Assam: Nilim Dutta ]
These days there is a conspiracy to kill it. I am making the allegation very seriously. People sitting in the government…to save Bangladeshis… they are doing this conspiracy to kill rhinos so that the area becomes empty and Bangladeshis can be settled there,” he had said in March this year.
No one wants illegal immigration problem to be solved more than the Muslims of Assam, because it is they who suffer from it the most. It is the Muslims who are abused, killed and hounded out of their homes in the name of illegal immigrants. Politics over the issue has made it more complex. The communal brigade has done everything to polarize views on illegal immigration and that’s why genuine Indian Muslims citizens are being branded as illegal immigrants. This complex problem must be fought by a logical approach, based on facts not feelings. [ref : Ground survey of Illegal immigration in Assam: Myth or reality ? ]
