Imphal, April 13,
BJP slammed Congress party in relation with the manifesto which highlighted to implement Laws on Asylum.
Speaking to media persons BJP’s spokesperson Bijoy stated that the Congress manifesto which points out to implement Laws on Asylum if they came to power will be very harmful to India as well as North East and Manipur in particular.
The Laws on Asylum was highlighted in the foreign section 16 clause 6 of the manifesto.
Bijoy said that the Laws on Asylum is more dangerous than CAB which will lead to demographic imbalance, social tensions and conflict to the nation.
He said that India refuse to sign United Nation Convention on Refugee and there are 40 countries including India refusing to sign this convention on Refugee since 1951.
Highlighting the threat which will be caused by the signing of Convention regarding refugee he added that if India signs the Convention on Refugee than any refugee around the world can enter the Indian soil and the illegal refugees cannot be driven away or arrested. He also said that food and shelter should be provided to them.
He continued that Congress manifesto has also a clause to sign such conventions. He added that Congress will surely sign 1951 United Nation Convention on Refugee and 1967 United Nation Protocol on Refugee.
Such signing of the two conventions and protocol regarding the refugees will lead to chaos throughout the entire nation, he added.
Bijoy said that United Nation Protocol on Refugee 1967 allows any international refugee that enter a particular country and also powered to provide a way of living for the refugee. He added that a travel card will be provided to the refugees by UN High Commissioner on Refugee to roam freely on other countries that signed the convention and protocol. Citizenship should be given to them
After Vietnam War, a massive refugee crisis occurred and the population was distributed to other countries that signed the convention and protocol.
He said that Congress always tries to bring up CAB issue misleading the people while they try to implement a more dangerous Law on Asylum.
