Law on asylum : Jayanta Malla attacks Congress

The Congress party in its manifesto, promised to pass a Law on Asylum in tandem with universal treaties and regulations.

Ahead of third phase polls in the state, on Saturday BJP leader Jayanta Malla Baruah slammed Congress party in relation with the manifesto which highlighted to implement Laws on Asylum.

Speaking to media persons Baruah stated that the Congress manifesto which points out to implement Laws on Asylum if they came to power will be very harmful to India as well as Assam and North East.

This is a significant development, as India is yet to have a law on those seeking asylum, despite being a country that attracts the largest number of refugees from world over.

He said that Congress will try to give Indian citizenship to Rohingya Muslims with the help of the contentious law. Congress always tries to bring up CAB issue misleading the people while they try to implement a more dangerous Law on Asylum. The Laws on Asylum is more dangerous than Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) which will lead to demographic imbalance, social tensions and conflict to the nation.

He also added that India refuse to sign United Nation Convention on Refugee and there are 40 countries including India refusing to sign this convention on Refugee since 1951. If India signs the Convention on Refugee than any refugee around the world can enter the Indian soil and the illegal refugees cannot be driven away or arrested.
