Illegal Immigration of Bangladeshis to Arunachal Pradesh

The Bangladeshi immigration is continuing unabated in the Northeast. In what was considered to be a problem primarily in Assam seems to be extending to the other states of Northeast as well.

The latest to join Assam and Tripura in this problem is Arunachal Pradesh. It is ironic that a State which has the Inner line Permit in place for even Indians seems to be having problems with immigrants from Bangladesh who seem to be entering into the State from Assam. These immigrants have started working in various menial jobs and have even set up small shops in some cases. The heartening fact is that unlike Assam, Arunchal Pradesh has started taking concrete steps to deport the illegal migrants out. Officials at Banderdewa Check post and various Assistant Commissioners in the State have been empowered to take suitable action against all illegal migrants. Inner Line Permits would be given after thorough checking and it has been decided that the voting lists are going to be scrutinised thoroughly. In addition to this, joint operation by magistrates and the police would be conducted to detect suspected Bangladeshis and deport them.
