via PTI published on May 26, 2008

Ahmedabad: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Monday announced its decission to launch a nation-wide campaign to oust Bangladeshi infiltrators from India.

“Bangladeshi infiltration has become a big problem for the country. There are more than three crore Bangladeshi immigrants in the country and they have become carriers of error in India,” VHP All-India Secretary Surendra Jain told reporters here.

“VHP will launch a nation-wide campaign against the Bangladeshis and make sure that they are driven out of India. Not a single one should be allowed to stay in the country,” Jain said.

“It will be a people’s movement across the nation which will begin in a couple of months,” Jain added.

“Though this issue is not new but now the problem has become very serious. It has been proved that Bangladeshis are not merely infiltrating but they are attacking the country and we need to stop this before it gets out of hand,” Jain added.

Jain also demanded the resignation of Home Minister Shiraj Patil’s for his comment that cases of Afzal Guru and Sarabjeet Singh should be viewed in a similar context.

“Patil should not give such statements. He should be taken to task,” Jain said.

The VHP leader said that lack of a central policy on terrorism indicates that the Government has no will or plan to fight against terror.

“It is a big lapse on part of the Government that they have failed to formulate a policy to fight terrorism. Countries like the US, the UK, Italy and other developed nations have a policy on terror but we don’t have,” Jain said.

Jain said that it is a matter of pity that the Government has not formulated any policy against terrorism even after the Supreme Court and Delhi High Court had pointed out the acuteness of the problem on various occasions.
