Assam immigration echoes in UN

The vexed illegal migrants issue in Assam has reached the United Nations when the Prabajan Virodhi Manch has screened an eye opening documentary at the ongoing UNHRC summit in Geneva on Thursday.

Produced by the organization entitled Assam: The Silent Genocide, the documentary has highlighted the impact of the unabeted influx of the Bangladeshi nationals from across the border. The border influx, according to the documentary, has upset the delicate demography of state and if these are allowed to go unchecked, the indigenous lot would be alien in their own home.
For the last couple of months, the organization led by noted lawyer Upamanyu Hazarika has been demanding immediate deportation of the illegal settlers.

Many other issues confronting Assam along with other north eastern states also prominently echoed in the session which is set to end on March 24. These include the Arms Forces Special Powers Act, food poisoning cases.
