JAMMU: Perturbed over the despicable apathy shown by the Central Government in deporting Rohingyas and Bangladeshis from Jammu despite their increased involvement in various crimes recently leading to public revulsion, a strong contingent of Panther activists spearheaded by Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman JKNPP staged a vociferous protest demonstration at Exhibition Ground in Jammu today.
While raising slogans of ‘Chodho Hamara Jammu Pradesh, Rohingyas Jaao Bangladesh’, ‘Rohingyas, Bangladeshis Go back’ the agitated protestors torched the effigy of the GoI.
With established criminal antecedents of Rohingyas besides recent seizure of Rs. 30 lakh from their possession in Channi Himmat by the police a couple of days ago, Harsh regretted that the GoI and the Governor administration were not taking the cognisance of the alarming situation which could explode and flare up tension in the entire Jammu province. He said with the illegal settlement of these foreign immigrants not only the demography of Jammu city and its peripheral areas had been under threat but they had become hub of serious crimes. “The recovery of the huge amount following the seizure of biggest ever haul of heroin worth Rs 250 crores from Narwal area inhabited by Rohingyas on Aug 6 had led to the suspicious angle of ‘Hawala transaction’ being carried out to fund terror activities in the State. In February this year, their involvement was suspected in the terror attack on the Sunjuwan Army Camp which had rocked the entire nation. They along with their supporters even dared to brutally attack the reporters and the cameramen from national media when they had visited the locality to cover the story of the illegal Rohingyan settlement in March this year”, Harsh divulged.
Accusing the GoI and the erstwhile BJP-PDP coalition of their failure to evict these unlawful foreigners, he said their settlement had further encouraged the anti-nationals operative in Kashmir to extend sectarian support to the Rohingyas settlement in Jammu region. He reminded the Union Home Minister Raj Nath Singh that the natives of Myanmar and Bangladesh had already been identified in Jammu city and its adjacent peripheries and as such they should be immediately deported from J&K.
Among those who spoke on the occasion included Rajesh Padgotra, Gagan Partap Singh, Shanker Singh Chib, Rajeshwar Singh Sambyal, Khajoor Singh, Rajesh Gondhi, Nirmal Kishore, Mohinder Singh, Rashpaul Singh, Vishab Singh, Udhayveer Singh, Rohit Sharma, Rakesh Verma, Joginder Singh and Naresh Kumar.
