TMC candidate Jirang constituency: BJP-ruled Assam is filled with Bangladeshi immigrants

Guwahati: Meghalaya Trinamool Congress member Sunmoon Marak of the Jirang seat claimed on February 17 that BJP-ruled Assam had an influx of immigrants, exposing the BJP’s hypocrisy for failing to clean up its own house while falsely blaming others of the same.

The remarks came BJP candidate Riya Sangma’s blatantly incorrect allegations that Meghalaya would experience an influx of Bangladeshi immigrants if TMC won the election.

“They are falsely claiming that TMC will bring the immigrants from Bangladesh but don’t they know that there are many Bangladesh immigrants in BJP-ruled Assam?” asked Marak.

Marak maintained that the BJP introduced the Law that grants Indian citizenship to persecuted minority from six nearby nations as he elaborated on the harsh Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The NPP voted in favour of the Bill, which the Trinamool Congress violently opposed.

“When TMC MPs were protesting against the law in 2019, it was NPP MP Agatha Sangma, who voted in favour of the Bill that allowed Indian citizenship for persecuted minorities from Bangladesh and five other neighbouring countries. It was only after facing backlash in Meghalaya, they pretended to demand its repeal as an empty gesture,” Marak said.

Slamming Sangma’s baseless assertions that only the BJP could solve the problems of border MoU, Marak said, “Meghalaya TMC leaders such as Dr Mukul Sangma, Charles Pyngrope, and George B Lyngdoh along with our MPs from TMC have been demanding to abolish the border MoU. Our leaders have been tirelessly fighting against the same issue.”

“People of Maikhuli, Pilingkata, and Ranipara from the Jirang constituency have been struggling due to the ongoing border issue yet the Chief Minister did not bother to come and meet them for once. Due to the nefarious nexus of the BJP and the Conrad-led government, the land of Meghalaya is now part of Assam,” said Marak.

“The constant targeting of Trinamool Congress shows that we have done something which the MDA regime could not do. Six months ago, they dismissed our political hold saying we have no base. Now, their day starts and ends with attacks against TMC. They are scared that the people of Meghalaya are supporting the only political alternative in the state i.e. the Meghalaya Trinamool Congress,” added the Jirang TMC candidate.
