Indian Army deployed to stop infiltration of Rohingyas
NEW DELHI: The Centre on Tuesday said that the Army has been deployed to stop Rohingya Muslims’ infiltration into the country and has also directed the states not to let them spread.
“The Border Security Force (BSF) and the Assam Rifles are deployed to stop further infiltration of the Rohingyas,” Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh told the Lok Sabha during the Question Hour.
He also said he has issued an advisory to states to monitor those who have already infiltrated. “They have been asked to keep them in one place and not let them spread. States also have the right to deport them,” Rajnath Singh said.
Trinamool Congress member Sugata Bose raised the issue that the Ministry of External Affairs is carrying out “Operation Insaniyat” (Operation Humanity) in Bangladesh while on the other hand it started the process of deportation of Rohingyas from the country. ..
“External Affairs Ministry is conducting operation insaniyat (humanity) for Rohingyas in Bangladesh. There are about 40,000 Rohingyas in India,” Bose said.
“Will we show insaniyat for only those who are in Bangladesh?” Bose asked.
