Govt facilitating illegal settlement of Rohingyas, Bangladeshi immigrants in Jammu: Dr Vikas Sharma

Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 12: Stepping up its campaign against illegal settlement of Rohingyas and Bangladeshi immigrants in Jammu, National Secular Forum questioned the people sitting at the helm of affairs for facilitating power supply to them unauthorizedly and that too at highly subsidized rates.
Addressing a meeting here today, NSF State Chief Dr Vikas Sharma said, "The Power Development Department (PDD) sanctioned as many as 7273 connections to the Rohingya and Bangladeshis presently putting up in Jhuggies at different places like Karyani Talab, Rakia Nallah, Narwal Bala, Sunjawan, Bhathindi and its adjoining areas from 2008 to Feb 2017."
"The illegal immigrants have been provided with the electricity connections whereas the genuine state subjects of the state are being made to run from pillar to post to get connection. It speaks volume about the larger plan to settle the illegal immigrants in Jammu wherein the people sitting at the helm of affairs facilitating the same at the instance of their political bosses," he alleged.
Dr Sharma also revealed that PDD collected meager revenue of Rs 1.42 crore from 7273 connection holders for the period of nine years which is negligible as monthly revenue from each connection comes to Rs 18 only. "Rohingyas and Bangladeshis have been consuming electricity at much higher level as most of them use Refrigerators, Coolers, TVs, Heaters and other electrical gadgets whereas people of Jammu are being made to pay electricity bills at much higher rates, which means that locals are being exploited and at their cost illegal immigrants are being settled here in large number," he mentioned.
Questioning the criminal silence of BJP leaders over this issue, the NSF Chief said that when BJP was out of power its leaders were vociferous for the cause of Jammu people but after coming to power they too have sided with the Kashmir bosses and couldn't muster courage to oppose the illegal settlements in Jammu. Dr Sharma divulged that in the recent development a group of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis had reportedly managed to buy land on the outskirts of Jammu city besides raising construction on JDA lands by procuring PRCs, Aadhar Cards and Ration cards pointing towards a larger conspiracy behind their settlement in Dogra land.
Dr. Vikas Sharma further said that a well thought out conspiracy is under way to surround Jammu city with the illegal settlement of Rohingyas and people of a particular community from the valley ostensibly to provide shelter to militants in Jammu areas on the pattern of valley. He sounded that the time has come for all the nationalistic forces to come together on one platform risinging above their party considerations and make serious result-oriented efforts to foil the nefarious designs of black sheeps in political parties either in the state or centre who are hell bent to annihilate the whole J&K state considered to be the crown of India.
