"Intruders have been continuously entering India since the day Bangladesh was created. Bangladeshi intruders are coming to India through the Indo-Bangladesh border. What is the reason, why didn't you (Congress) stop them? Why didn't you completely seal the Indo-Bangladesh border?" he asked at an election rally in Duliajan.

Highlighting the steps taken by his government in this regard, Singh said that a few months ago he had visited the India-Bangladesh border and held "talks with the Bangladesh government".

"We just need some time and we will seal the Indo-Bangladesh border completely so that no Bangladesh intruder can come in," he said.

Later today, Singh will address three more election rallies for BJP candidates in Assam where Assembly polls will be held in two phases on 4 and 11 April.
