Bangladeshi Muslims working as arms carriers: BJP
December 04, 2006 18:20 IST
"There is an alarming rise of Bangladeshi Muslims who have infiltrated into Assam and are working as arms carriers for the ISI which is backing the ULFA to conduct subversive activities in the state," BJP's newly elected Assam unit president Ramen Deka told reporters in Guwahati.
Claiming that the recent blast next to Guwahati Railway station triggered by explosives kept in a cycle rickshaw, apparently run by a Bangladeshi, he said it indicated that infiltrators were being used as arms agents by the ISI.
"RDX which is imported in huge amount is a patent Pakistani explosive this is supplied through the infiltrators," he alleged.
The BJP leader alleged that as many as 3,279 new villages in the Brahmaputra riverine areas had come up with "predominantly Bangladeshi infiltrators population" which the "Congress government in the state take as their vote bank".
Stating that there are "many similarities in the Malegaon and Assam bomb blasts incidents..." Deka said the ISI and Jihadi outfits are at large in the state and the government is a "silent spectator."
