Bajrang Dal calls bandh on July 30 on ‘D’ voters issue

SILCHAR, July 24: Along with Pratibadi Gana Mancha, Bajrang Dal, Dakshin Purva Pranta, has also called for dawn to dusk bandh on July 30 on the issue of 'D' voters. Addressing a press meet here today, Rathindra Kumar Adhyapak, secretary, Dakshin Purva Pranta, Bajrang Dal, said that the ongoing police action to detect and deport suspected Bangladeshis or foreigners, the Hindu Indian citizens "have been made the prime target which he described as most undemocratic, illegal and unconstitutional, besides being in flagrant violation of the commitment of national leaders at the time of the partition of the country".
He added to say that in hunting down the Hindu citizens, the state machinery was overlooking the various provisions of Immigration (expulsion from Assam) Act of 1950 as well as Nehru-Liaqat Pact. It was most unfortunate that the Hindus across theState were hounded out without any human consideration. He reminded that just on the eve of Assembly elections, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi assured of sympathetic consideration for the Hindus whom he refused to equate with infiltrators. But, no positive action "has yet been initiatedin this respect", he pointed out.
Himanta Biswa Sarma, Minister of Assam Accord Implementation, too concurred with the Chief Minister and spoke of special and human consideration of the Hindu migrants taking shelter in the State. The legal provision as envisioned in 1950 Act clearly provided safeguard to this category of migrants from Bangladeshsince they had to desert their hearths and homes due to 'civil disturbance' as well as 'religious persecution'. It was expected that with the annulment of IMDT Act of 1983, the case of Hindu migrants who had to enter this side of the border from timeto time and most particularly after the1971 Bangladesh war, special legal provisions would be taken to protect them and provide them shelter.
He cited various instances of harassment of Hindus who despite all the valid documents were being pushed back to the other side of the border. It was quite inexplicable how in the absence of any treaty with Bangladesh, the migrants would be accepted by that country. In reality, after push back, they were left at the mercy of their fate which was against all principles of humanity and civility. Bajrang Dal wants to convey the message that the harassment of Hindus in the name of detection and deportation of foreigners should end forthwith and a suitable legislation beenacted by the Government for their protection. Rathindra Kumar Adhyapak revealed that besides fighting for the cause of refugees, Bajrang Dal would hold a mass convention of the Hindus on December 25, 2011 at Katigorah whichwould be attended by all the stalwartsof the organization as a part of their nationwide movement to awaken theHindus against the dangers created bythe present Congress regime in New Delhi. Ashok Singhal, international president, Pravin Bhai Tagodia, general secretary, and Ritambhara Devi would grace the greatest ever congregation in living memory, he pointed out. Others who addressed the press meet included Suresh Dwivedi, vice-president, Dakshin Purva Pranta, and Mrinal Kanti Das, a member. (SentinelAssam)
