JKNPP holds protests over Rohingya issue

JKNPP holds protests over Rohingya issueJAMMU: The J&K National Panthers Party (JKNPP) held protests against the state government saying it had failed to deport Rohingyas and Bangladeshis from Jammu despite brewing public outrage, and demanded their immediate “repatriation”.
Activists led by JKNPP chairman Harsh Dev Singh staged a protest at the exhibition ground here and burnt an effigy of the coalition government.
The protesters accused the BJP-PDP combine of disregarding the public sentiment with regard to the eviction of “illegally settled foreign immigrants” from Jammu.
Singh said if the Rohingyas were settled in Jammu during the Congress rule but the BJP had provided them all amenities and facilitated their stay in and around the winter capital.
They had illegally raised fabricated slums at some of the congested colonies in Jammu city and managed to procure PRCs, Aadhaar cards, ration cards, free water connections during the saffron rule, he added.
Hitting out at the state government, the JKNPP chairman said the much hyped group of four BJP cabinet ministers tasked to identify unlawful immigrants had only colluded with them and facilitated their settlement in Jammu.-PTI
