Northeast no dumping ground for Bangladeshis : NESO
“The Northeast is not a dustbin for the Bangladeshis. All the states of the Northeast have faced the problem of unabated illegal immigration from Bangladesh. The continuous flow of foreigners from Bangladesh has constantly altered the demography of each of the states of the Northeast region. All the political parties have deliberately ignored and abated the problem to grow over the decades,” stated the NESO leaders here.
