Cong, NC unmoved by Govt decision to deport Rohingyas: Jitendra

Cong, NC unmoved by Govt decision to deport Rohingyas: Jitendra

Jammu, Jun 10 (UNI) Lashing out at the double standards and the policy of appeasement followed by opposition parties, Union Minister in PMO, Dr Jitendra Singh on Sunday said Congress and National Conference are not concerned by the Modi Government’s decision to deport the Rohingyas.

“While every right thinking citizen across the country has hailed the announcement made by Home Minister Rajnath Singh at Jammu that every Rohingya settler will be made to return to Myanmar without any leniency, the National Conference and Congress leaders are apologetic and hesitant in welcoming this announcement,” Dr Singh here told reporters.

He said that this only exposes the lack of clarity and conviction on their part as well as their politics of appeasement for vote.

Reiterating that no Rohingya settler will be allowed to obtain Aadhar Card or Voter card or any other similar Identity card, Dr Singh said, if any such case comes to light, the official responsible will be taken to task with strict action.

The MoS PMO alleged that it was during the Congress-NC rule that the Rohingyas clandestinely came to Jammu region and illegally began to settle here.

“The ruling parties at that time, he said, conveniently turned a blind eye in the hope that Rohingyas will bring about a demographic change and tilt the vote composition in their favour,” he added and said that soon after being thrown out of power, the same parties raised hue and cry for public consumption but secretly wished that Rohingyas should not be sent back.

“Now that the Modi Government has come out with a clear and firm stand on the issue by deciding on the deportation of Rohingyas”, he said and added that these political parties are finding themselves at their wit's end, and are therefore confused whether to welcome the decision or simply to ignore it.

Later, in a meeting with border area residents from Hiranagar and Kathua sector, Dr Singh said, the proposal to construct “Seema Bhawans” for the border area people to take shelter during cross border firing has been unanimously hailed by all, but some political parties are uncomfortable because they wanted to make it an issue to agitate against the Government.
