Guwahati: The border has been covered with security. About 60,000 police and paramilitary troops have been mobilized in a sensitive border state ahead of the publication of a list of citizens, a report said.
According to sources, the troops will be used to detect and deport illegal immigrants – mainly Muslims – from neighboring Bangladesh.
As we know the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) took power in the state to act against illegal Muslim residents who take away jobs from local Hindus.
It is mentioned that Assam is on the edge ahead of the publication of the part National Draft Register of Citizens on December 31, and the security forces, including 22,000 paramilitary personnel, are being deployed in different districts, especially in sensitive pockets.
The counter-insurgency (CI) grid, involving the Army, the police and paramilitary and intelligence agencies, has been regularly reviewing the situation, and directed all possible action to ensure peace after the publication of the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC), a senior government official said here.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh’s Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said Dhaka had no knowledge of any plans to deport people. We didn’t receive any information from the Indian government, neither formally or informally.
