Who is responsible for this? Our own people, the likes of Dhiren Saikia.

I request Assam Times reporters, please go to Sigri Chapari and Gorudubba Chapadi (Sonitpur). I think many illegal Bangladesis live there.

Please do publish in details about the culprit who help Bangladeshis to enter Assam. Like with full name, residence address and age so that he or she should feel ashamed from Assamese. Why to blame only to Indian government since our own people are not good.

We have to focus attention that all those Bangladeshis will not entertain at any cost, other wise they will surely convert our golden Assam to dirty Bangladesh and our politician don't have any objections as long as they are getting the vote bank.
