Jammu, April 4 (PTI) The J-K National Panthers Party (JKNPP) today held protest against the state government, especially the ruling coalition partner BJP, for allegedly not doing anything to deport Rohingyas and Bangladeshis from Jammu region, despite brewing public anger.

Activists led by JKNPP Chairman Harsh Dev Singh staged a protest at the Exhibition ground here.

Describing the Rohingyas as the “biggest threat” to the communal harmony and composite culture of Jammu, Singh alleged the BJP partnered dispensation of not responding to the alarming situation, which he said could vitiate peace in the city of temples.

What happened to the much trumpeted group of four Ministers (GoM) headed by Deputy CM Nirmal Singh which was constituted last year in Feb 2017 to identify the unlawful immigrants for their deportation? “You cannot befool the public by such gimmicks said Harsh cautioning it of serious repercussions of such deceptive moves”, he added.

He alleged that the number of illegal foreign immigrants posing a demographic threat to Jammu region had soared under the BJP rule as thousands of Rohingyas are now camping in Jammu and Samba districts.

“They had illegally raised fabricated slums at several congested colonies in Jammu city and managed to procure PRCs, Aadhaar cards, Ration cards, free water connections under the tutelage of the present BJP-PDP dispensation”, Singh added.

The protest that saw activists raising anti-BJP slogans and burning effigy of the coalition government demanded for the immediate repatriation of illegally settled foreigners.
