AGP demanded from Centre to seal the Indo-Bangladesh border.

AGPNew Delhi: On Saturday, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) demanded instant steps from the Centre to seal the Indo-Bangladesh border to check unabated illegal immigration from across the boundary.

Referring to the current spate of violence in Kokrajhar in Assam, AGP president and former Assam CM Prafulla Kumar Mahanta blamed the Centre for not taking tough measures.

He said that the Centre must immediately seal the international border in Assam and organize enough mechanism to check the migration.

He also said that “There are government records which show the presence of foreigners in Assam. Continuous rise of immigrants have endangered the population of Assamese existence.”

Deputy Chief of Bodoland Territorial Council Kampa Borgayari said that illegal migration from across the border was politically motivated and supported by religious radical forces.

Borgayari said that there were several laws in force in the country but none of them have been able to put off or stop the illegal migration.
