NDA will stop infiltration into Assam from Bangladesh: Rajnath Singh
Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said that the NDA government at the Centre will completely seal the Indo-Bangladesh border to stop intrusion.
Duliajan: Accusing the Congress government in Assam of having failed to stop infiltration from Bangladesh, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said that the NDA government at the Centre will completely seal the Indo-Bangladesh border to stop intrusion.
"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.
The Home Minister will also attend two election rallies in West Bengal tomorrow before returning to the national capital.
