Illegal migrants being identified, says Assam Minister

Special Correspondent

Guwahati: Two days after Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi reiterated that Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland had not pushed illegal Bangladeshi migrants into the State, Forest Minister Rockybul Hussain informed the Assembly that the process of identifying persons from Arunachal Pradesh was continuing.

Replying to a written question by Independent member Pranab Kalita, the Forest Minister said 3190 persons entered the State from Arunachal Pradesh till July 18.

On Saturday, Mr Gogoi reiterated that all those who had entered Assam from Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland “have been found to be Indian citizens with valid documents as per the provisions of the Assam Accord.” The All Assam Students’ Union, the AGP, the Bhartiya Janata Party, Asom Yuba Chatra Parishad and Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha were sceptical. They wondered how the State Government could so quickly verify their citizenship. They alleged that the Congress-led Government was protecting Bangladeshi migrants.
