Gadkari blames immigrants for riot

BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Wednesday demands immediate sealing of the Indo-Bangladesh border to help the state get rid of the trouble mongers. He alleged that the ruling Congress has a tie-up with infiltrators from Bangladesh for its vote-bank politics and that this is the main problem for the recent violence in Assam. Speaking at a discussion on Bodo Hindus - Refugees in their own land, he said that Bangladeshi immigrants are main reason for the violent incidents in Assam. He appealed to all political parties to stand by the people of Indian origin and throw out the illegal migrants.
