2 crores illegal Bangladeshis in the country: Rijiju

When organizations in Assam are making hue and cry over illegal Bangladeshi migrants occupying economic and political space in the state, MoS Home Kiren Rijiju in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today said there are 2 crore illegal Bangladeshis in the country.
Replying to a question of Tripura MP Jharna Das, Rijiju said Bangladeshis had entered the country clandestinely and surreptitiously without any valid documents. So, it is not possible to have accurate data. However, he further said according to inputs, there are 2 crore illegal Bangladeshis living in India.
On their detection and deportation he said it is a continuous process and state government and Union territories are given mandate to do so under section 3 (2)(c) of Foreigners Act 1946.
