Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh recently said that Rohingya’s were not refugees but illegal immigrants and the process to deport them back to Myanmar has begun. Instruction to all state government has been issued in this regard.
Reacting to some political party objecting to the deportation of Rohingya’s the Union Minister further commented that he was surprised at ‘such objections’ as Myanmar was ready to take them back.
He further added that appropriate advisory to ensure that they, the Rohingya’s, do not succeed in procuring any documents to claim Indian Citizenship has been issued. He also opined that after identifying the Rohingya’s settled illegally in India, his ministry will take up the matter with Myanmar Government for their return. The minister observed that Rohingya’s were from Burma and they will be returned to Burma, as per reports.
Prime Minister Modi death threat
Meanwhile, BJP also took notice to the opposition’s stand on Prime Minister Modi’s death threat. In a recently held press conference Union Minister, as well as BJP MP Prakash Javedkar, took a dig at the opposition.
Without naming any party Javedkar opined that the opposition’s reaction to the death threat on Prime Minister reflects on their insensitivity. He said this country has lost two Prime Minister, who were assassinated. Even after these incidents opposition is not condemning the issues. He stressed, ‘Now time has come to be united against these kinds of activities.”
Allegations refuted by BJP minister Prakash Javedkar
Javedkar also refuted P Chidambaram’s allegation on growth issues. The former Finance Minister with the UPA government had recently questioned the Narendra Modi-led government on its policies like growth, job opportunity, and farm issue. To this Javedkar said that “It is like ‘ulta chor kotwal ko datein’,” (which means the thief reprimanding the police).
Javedkar further opined that from NPA’s (non-profitable asset) to fuel price hike to failure in social security scheme, all these were baseless allegations of the opposition. He informed that the farmer suicides started form UPA regime and it is the BJP who set the ball rolling in favour of farmers with the implementation of MSP (minimum selling price) for a farmer, on recommendations of the Swaminathan Committee. He slammed the opposition by saying that such issues were being raised by the Congress for gaining political mileage and is a way to distract the people of the country from the destructive financial policy of previous UPA government.
