jammu, AUG 10:
Perturbed over the despicable apathy shown by the central government in deporting Rohingyas and Bangladeshis from Jammu despite their increased involvement in various crimes recently leading to public revulsion, a strong contingent of Panther activists spearheaded by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP staged a vociferous protest demonstration at Exhibition Ground in Jammu today. While raising slogans of ‘Chodho Hamara Jammu Pradesh, Rohingyas Jaao Bangladesh’,’Rohingyas, Bangladeshis Go back’ the agitated protestors torched the effigy of the GoI. With established criminal antecedents of Rohingyas besides recent seizure of Rs. 30 lakh from their possession in Channi Himmat by the police a couple of days ago, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh regretted that the GoI and the Governor administration were not taking the cognizance of the alarming situation which could explode and flare up tension in the entire Jammu province. He said with the illegal settlement of these foreign immigrants not only the demography of Jammu city and its peripheral areas had been under threat but they had become hub of serious crimes. “The recovery of the huge amount following the seizure of biggest ever haul of heroin worth Rs 250 crores from Narwal area inhabited by Rohingyas on Aug 6 had led to the suspicious angle of ‘hawala transaction’ being carried out to fund terror activities in the State. In February this year, their involvement was suspected in the terror attack on the Sunjuwan Army camp which had rocked the entire nation. They along with their supporters even dared to brutally attack the reporters and the cameramen from national media when they had visited the locality to cover the story of the illegal Rohingyan settlement in March this year”, Harsh divulged. Accusing Rohingyas of criminal and radicalized mind set , Mr. Harsh Dev Singh said the public outrage against them could be gauged from the ‘writing on the walls’ which appeared at several public places in the city seeking deportation of Rohingyas and B’deshis from the Dogra land. These illegal immigrants described as ‘ticking time bombs’ by the intelligence agencies had been found active in fuelling narco smuggling, human trafficking, child abductions, offences against state, border crossing and other crimes. Moreover, there were reports of Rohingyas having been involved in the sacrilegious acts to flare up communal tension in Jammu city which had instigated the people to come on the roads to lodge their protest, Harsh maintained. Ruing that that the people were sick of the stereotype statements issued by the Central leaders for mere media consumption, Mr. Singh said while the Rohingyas and Bangladeshis were settled in Jammu during Congress-NC rule, the BJP had been hand in glove with its ally PDP in providing them all kinds of civic amenities to settle them in and around Jammu city under a deep rooted conspiracy to reduce Dogras to minority.
Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Rajesh Padgotra, Gagan Partap Singh, Shanker Singh Chib, Rajeshwar Singh Sambyal, Khajoor Singh, Rajesh Gondhi, Nirmal Kishore, Mohinder Singh, Rashpaul Singh, Vishab Singh, Udhayveer Singh, Rohit Sharma, Rakesh Verma, Joginder Singh, Naresh Kumar besides others.
