New Delhi: Award life imprisonment to politicians who help rehabilitate illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Pakistan, a BJP member demanded today.
The demand was made during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha by Keshav Prasad Maurya who alleged that some political parties were offering protection to these illegal immigrants and helped them get ration and voter cards so that they can influence polls in their favour.
Claiming that they have become a “decisive factor in over 120 assembly seats” across Assam, West Bengal and Bihar, he said “I demand that all such politicians who in their greed for their votes offer them protection and other facilities should be sentenced to at least life imprisonment.”
He sought revision of electoral rolls in Bihar, West Bengal and Assam and removal of names of such illegal immigrants before these assemblies go to polls.
“Due to support from some political parties, these illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Pakistan have settled down in various parts of the country and are availing of the facilities meant for the poor,” he said.
