Jammu, January 05 | Tarun Uppal urged upon the BJP led government at the Centre to immediately deport foreign nationals including Rohingyas from the Jammu region without wasting any more time.
In a statement issued here on Saturday, Uppal quoted the statement of the Union Minister, Dr. Jitendra Singh who told that BJP Government’s next move would be to deport Rohingyas from the Jammu region as they will not be able to secure citizenship under the newly amended Citizenship Act.
Uppal mentioned that according to data released by government agencies more than 13,700 foreigners, including Rohingya Muslims and Bangladeshi nationals, are settled in Jammu and Samba districts.
“Indiscriminate settlement of Bangladeshis and Rohingyas in and around Jammu poses a serious security threat to the resident of City of Temples,” he said, adding that it was proved that the involvement of Rohingyas was found during the Sujwan terrorists attack in Jammu.
He alleged that the number of illegal foreign immigrants posing a demographic threat to the Jammu region. They had illegally raised fabricated slums at several congested colonies in Jammu city and managed to procure PRCs, Aadhaar cards, Ration cards, free water connections, he said. He claimed that the ingression and unlawful settlement of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis in Jammu is a grave threat to the cultural, historical and religious identity of Dogras.
“Reports had revealed that they were also enjoying the patronage of the several terror outfits. The failure of successive government to evict them had further encouraged the anti-nationals operative in Kashmir to extend sectarian support to the Rohingyas settlement in Jammu region,” he said.
Describing the Rohingyas as the biggest threat to the communal harmony and composite culture of Jammu, Uppal hoped that this time BJP led Government at the Centre will not leave any stone unturned in deporting the Rohingyas as with the amendment in the Citizenship Act it becomes easy for BJP government to deport them from Jammu region without any hesitation.
