The Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) today staged a demonstration in Jammu as part of its campaign to press for early deportation of Rohingyas and Bangladeshi nationals. Led by party chairman and former minister Harsh Dev Singh, a group of JKNPP activists staged the demonstration at Exhibition ground, raising slogans against the government and in support of their demand.
Accusing the state government of not being sincere in the deportation of the illegally settled foreigners from Jammu, Singh claimed that they are the "biggest threat" to the communal harmony and composite culture of the region.
"The criminal apathy of the PDP-BJP government over the issue resulted in massive public outrage. The present dispensation had not responded to the alarming situation which could vitiate peace in the city of temples," said the JKNPP leader. He said it seems that the government isn't bothered to contemplate any move to deport the foreign immigrants despite public revulsion which has reached its peak.
"The BJP is keeping Kashmir-centric leaders and the separatists in good humor by shelving the most dangerous issue which has been haunting Jammu region for a long time now," Singh said. The leader claimed that the number of illegal foreign immigrants posing a demographic threat to Jammu region had "soared under the BJP rule" with thousands of Rohingyas camping in Jammu and Samba districts.
The immigrants had illegally raised fabricated slums at several congested colonies in Jammu city and managed to procure Permanent Resident Certificates, Aadhaar cards, ration cards, free water, and electricity connections, he said. Singh accused them of involving in fuelling narco smuggling, human trafficking, child abductions, sacrilegious acts, and border-crossing. They're also enjoying the patronage of terror outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen, he alleged.
