RSS Akhil Bharatiya Sah Sampark Pramukh Shri Ram Madhav slammed the UPA government for its poor and undemocratic policies on North-East issue and said the UPA is eyeing on 2014 elections through Bangladeshi infiltrator’s vote in North-East India. Participating in an intellectual conference in Bengaluru on September 1, he said, “We need to detect and disenfranchise the Bangladeshi infiltrators from the country. There is very little done by the Central government to deport them, just 1 per cent per 5 days, though the rate of infiltration is about 6,000 per day.” The programme was organised by Manthana, an intellectual platform, attended by nearly 300 citizens of Bengaluru.
In his keynote speech, former MP from Assam Shri Sarbananda Sonowal said in the last 32 years the indigenous people of Assam have been cornered and pushed to the status of minority due to the huge influx of illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. Every ruler, every politician, every media house and every administrator had information on this trend because time to time the intelligence input was being provided by several former secretaries of Home Ministry, directors of IB and DG of BDF through their write-ups in national dailies, magazines and through pamphlets. He said today out of 27 districts, 11 districts are lost to the infiltrators. Therefore, only 16 districts are left in the hands of the bonafide citizens of Assam. If we fail to protect even these from further illegal immigration, Bangladesh will have a stronger claim over parts of Assam citing the population of Muslims in these parts.
He emphasised that first we should compel the government to seal the entire border of 272 km completely and ensure that the army is deployed throughout and no lenience is given for any illegal entrants. As per the promise made in Assam Accord of 1985, the National Register of Indian Citizens in Assam needs to be updated. The earlier NRCs of 1950 and 1960 and the voters list of 1971 can be used to update the NRC and identify the true citizens and the foreign elements in Assam. Accomplishing this will be a major milestone in the solution to the North-East crisis.

It is a tragedy that the Central government is hesitant to give voting rights to Hindu refugees, but willingly giving all such rights to Bangladeshi infiltrators, said Kshetra Sampark Pramukh of the RSS Dr Kalladka Prabhakar Bhatt while addressing a protest organised outside Town Hall in Bangaluru on August 27. The protest was organised under the banner of Save Assam Forum to condemn the attack on North-East Indians especially of Assam citizens recently.
“The root cause of problem of North-East and Assam violence is infiltration from Bangaldesh. Government should show its political will to deport the infiltrators, instead of giving them a royal treatment,” Dr Bhatt said. He pointed out that 35 to 40 incidents of attempt to rape, physical attack, threats, criminal conspiracies by Muslims on the people of North-East led to the recent exodus of these people from Bengaluru.
ABVP zonal organising secretary Shri Ravi Kumar said the Congress led UPA Government is providing all facilities to Bangladeshi infiltrators. These illegal immigrants are enjoying here as they are in a paradise, which was provided to them by the UPA government. Shri Jugantha Das, a student who hails from Assam, said, “People of Assam are facing tragic situations due to mass infiltration of Banglade-shis. We demand the government to take immediate necessary action so that the Assam imbroglio ends soon.” He praised the timely help of the RSS swayamsevaks at Railway Station in Bengaluru, for providing food, safety and security for 90 hours continuously to about 27,000 North-East passengers during the recent North-East exodus episode.

The awareness generated through Vishwa Mangal Gou Gram Yatra all over the country for protection of the cow has now started producing impressive results. After the Yatra, about 6,000 new goushalas have been started in different parts of the country and work on many cow-based industries and projects, both in rural and urban areas, has begun.
According to Shri Shankarlal, Akhil Bharatiya Gou Sewa Pramukh of the RSS, many senior saints of the country and dedicated people have started devoting more time to these activities. He said the work on setting up Swavalambi Kamdhenu Nagar is going to begin in many cities of the country. In such Nagars, he said, some multi-story buildings will be built where the supply of maximum cow-based things including milk, curd, ghee, organic foodgrains, fruits, vegetables, etc will be ensured. There will also be plants for energy generation from waste and Gochikitsa Kendras in such localities.
Shri Shankarlal also pointed out that the work on creating Gou Abhayaranya (cow sanctuaries) in different parts of the country has started and one such sanctuary has already been created in Shajapur district of Madhya Pradesh. He said some Gosewa Kendras have been started in prisons of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. Since these projects have produced good results, the talks with different jail authorities are going on for starting similar projects. He said cow research centres are being set-up in all the states and efforts are being made to liberate the gochar land in different villages, which has been encroached by some people. (FOC)
