Suspected B’deshi: Congress leaders run the risk of peril

A section of political leaders of the ruling Congress is behind the documents being used by some suspected Bangladeshi immigrants to prove their Indian citizenship. Some startling revelations have further complicated the situation in Lakhimpur district when AASU activists picked up altogether 57 suspected illegal Bangladeshi people from a newly set up village.

A few of the suspected Bangladeshi nationals when rounded up by AASU activists made some uncomfortable revelations saying a section of ruling party leaders have being helping them even issuing them documents to prove Indian citizenship.

Akbar Ali is one of them who came out with these revelations that could drag two Congress leaders dreg into controversy. When rounded up by AASU activists, Akbar, who resides at the newly set up Chawldhuwa in Lakhimpur town said altogether 25 families have settled in the villages on the bank of the river Suvansiri. Infact, the plot belongs to the Assam government’s soil conservation department. Akbar is the main person behind this new village.

But these people have some suspected documents to prove Indian citizenship issued by Jonia MLA Abdul Khalek. These documents have no issue date and also no photograph. According to what these people told the AASU activists, he was Akbor who brought them and from Dhubri and Barpeta districts.

Even Akbor gave them these documents to prove Indian citizenship. AASU activists have already picked up 75 suspected illegal Bangladeshi immigrants including Akbor and handed them over to police. Moreover, Akbor is working day and night to set up a masjid and a madrassa in this village.

Akbor told journalists recently that former MP Ranee Narah has been helping them off and on and that he closed to Jonia MLA Abdul Khalek.

God save Assam. The first thing that the AASU needs to do is come up with solid proof and file a case against the MLA and MP. These are the people who are encouraging illegal immigrants for their vote bank putting the future of Assam at stake.
