Accusing the Government of India of befooling the people for past five years over the much awaited deportation of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis from Jammu region, a strong contingent of Panther activists, spearheaded by Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman JKNPP and other leaders, staged a thunderous protest demonstration at the Exhibition Ground here on Thursday.
While raising slogans against BJP and Governor’s administration, the infuriated activists sought repatriation of illegally settled foreigners from Dogra land without any further delay.
Accusing Congress, NC, PDP of openly supporting Rohingyan’s settlement in the State, Harsh further took a jibe at Kashmir-based IAS officer turned politician, who celebrated his birthday with Rohingyas in Jammu city recently.
“A new kid on the block, who has floated JKPM, went one notch above his Kashmiri compeers to placate illegal immigrants in a bid to toe the separatist agenda in the city of temples. This is intolerable. Why is Saffron brigade silent over the issue? Why did Governor’s administration fail to take cognizance of JKPM-Rohingya meet? Shockingly in last 5 years, the Central leaders only issued stereotype statements for mere media consumption and nothing tangible happened. Meanwhile, Rohingyan’s population soared and flourished under erstwhile BJP-PDP coalition, which provided them all kinds of civic amenities to settle them in and around Jammu city under a deep rooted conspiracy to reduce Dogras to minority. What a shame that in the State like ours, the perfidy of placating illegal immigrants, subversives, surrendered terrorists and anti-nationals remained en-vogue but martyrs continued to be disregarded with no acknowledgement to their supreme sacrifice. Has anybody bothered to pay visit to family of martyr Imran Tak, a native of Basantgarh who despite being critically wounded, eliminated militants in a deadliest ambush attack in Kashmir? Ironically, neither any ex-gratia nor gallantry award was announced for slain Sub Inspector,” regretted Harsh.
Dubbing Rohingyas as the biggest threat to the communal harmony and composite culture of Jammu Pradesh, Harsh Dev Singh divulged that these illegal immigrants were described as ‘ticking time bombs’ by intelligentsia.
“They have been found active in fuelling narco-smuggling, human trafficking, sacrilegious crimes, child abductions, border crossing and other crimes. The frequent incidents of recovery of huge illicit cash reportedly meant for ‘hawala transaction’ besides seizure of heroin worth hundreds of crores from areas inhabited by Rohingyas had led to suspicion that they could be carrying out terror funding activities in the State. Not to forget, that their involvement was also suspected in terror attack on Sunjuwan Army camp last year. They along with their supporters even dared to brutally attack the journalists and cameramen from national media, when the latter visited the locality to cover the story of their illegal settlement earlier. Surprisingly, they were also enjoying the patronage of radical terror outfits operational in the valley”, Harsh revealed.
While describing their early repatriation as the need of the hour, he further asserted that since the natives of Myanmar and Bangladesh had already been identified in the State, they should be immediately deported from Jammu region.
