By Subhash Singh from Lucknow
February 22, 2009

But Police will not be successful in it’s drive due to the interference of
political leaders and so-called social organisations who favoure these intruders
due to their personal interest. In some areas of the State the name of these
Bangladeshis are in voters list. They are the voters of the so-called secular
parties, specially in the Muslim dominated districts of the State.

Up is facing a new threat from illegal immigrants. These intruders are basically
the civilians of Bangladesh but they have been successful to get Indian identity
cards like rashan cards, driving licenses, (Below Poverty Line) BPL cards and
mobile connections, etc. These intruders claim that they are the true residents of
Assam and West Bengal. Their mother tongue is Bengali, therefore the local police
and local intelligence unit are unable to identify them as Bangladeshis. Police
sources say that these Bangladeshi intruders have settled in the outskirts of
nearly every district of Uttar Pradesh. Anti-social elements and sometimes Muslim
terrorists take shelter in their huts. Police sources say that nearly ten lack
Bangladeshi intruders are in UP. Till now no police verification has been done
successfully due to the vote bank politics of political parties.

The Director General of UP police Shri Vikram Singh wrote a letter to all the
superintendents of police and directed them to check the credentials of Bangladeshi
nationals who have migrated to India. In the drive, it was made clear that
Bangladeshi nationals are in every district of UP. Local intelligence of police is
unable to identify them as immigrants due to their Indian identity cards. Till
today only one Bangladeshi could be deported to his motherland. When a drive
against them starts, secular leaders come in for their defence. These leaders
mostly belong to Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the Congress. These
leaders assume them as their vote bank. They create hindrance against the drive.
Police sources say that ISI protected terrorists of Bangladesh and Pakistan take
shelter in their huts and act against the unity and integrity of India.

It is supposed that these Bangladeshi nationals are living in outskirts of Lucknow,
Muradabad, Agra, Rampur, Farrukhabad, Meerut, Aligarh, Kanpur, Varanasi, Gazipur,
Ballia, Sultanpur, Faizabad, Banda, Lalitpur, Jhansi, Mainpuri, Auraiya, Itawa and
Kannauj, etc. The capital of Uttar Pradesh Lucknow is disturbed because of these
Bangladeshi intruders. These intruders have become part and parcel of local Muslim
community. Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party protects them due to vote bank
politics. They are living in Kgdiyaghat, Pkka Pull, Kakori, Triveni Nagar, Madiyav,
Hasangang, Gaiipur, Faijullagang, Paharpur, Nishatgang, Rahimnagar, Kukrail,
Balughat, Mankameshwar, Sarvodar Nagar, Gulabghat, Aishbagh, etc. In a search
operation, thousands of Bangladeshis were checked with regards to their personal
details, which included their name, age and identification proofs including the
time period of their stay. A police officer said that we conducted the drive after
getting a tip-off that some of Bangladeshi nationals were living in the city
without getting their verification done. During the whole exercise verification
forms of all the migrants living in capital were filled and a detailed
investigations were conducted. According to the Police, last year a Bangladeshi
national Mantosh Kumar was deported to his country after the expiry of his term of
punishment,. Police also claimed that those found guilty will be booked under the
section of Foreigners Act 1946 and Section3/2/4 of Passport Entry in India Act,
1920. Local intelligence agency have also accepted that the drive has been started
keeping in view the security concerns. As a part of this drive those people who
have been living in UP illegally will be deported to their motherland.

But Police will not be successful in it’s drive due to the interference of
political leaders and so called social organisations who favoure these intruders
due to their personal interest. In some areas of the State the name of these
Bangladeshis are in voters list. They are the voters of so called secular parties.
Specially in the Muslim dominated districts of the State. In these districts
intruders have taken shelter and they are part of Muslim community. When a drive
starts against them, Muslim community comes forward in their support. All India
United Muslim Morcha plays a dominant role in this respect. The Mayor of Lucknow
Shri Dinesh Sharma accepted that these Bangladeshis have become threat to the
security of Lucknow. The organisational secretary of VHP Shri Purushottam Narayan
Singh said that these intruders must be deported to their motherland as soon as
possible.
