Seventy three more Rohingya refugees have settled down in the refugee camp in Hardaha village in West Bengal’s South 24 Parganas on Wednesday, taking the total number of inmates to 102. Some 29 Rohingyas from Bangladesh’s Chittagong had earlier settled in West Bengal’s only Rohingya camp.
Recently, BJP started to oppose such settlements for Rohingyas. State BJP president Dilip Ghosh has opposed the settlement in Baruipur as there is no legal authentication in that. Allegedly, they have infiltrated in West Bengal via Bangladesh-Myanmar Teknaf border. He has threatened further legal process regarding the issue. After such comment district police is on high alert. A questioning process has issued right after such activity.
Minority Young Federation president Kamarujjaman has strongly opposed such immediate activities against the refugees. He said, “India is tolerant country. Many refugees have taken shelter in India before. But why such deprivation in case of Rohingyas.”
It is clear from his statement that Mamata Banerjee have expressed inductive attitude towards Rohingyas. “Her humane message did not reach the the ear of administration”, he added. Police wants to remove them from West Bengal. We want to keep them with us safely till they can go back to Myanmar.
