If the BJP forms a government in Assam, it will end illegal infiltration from Bangladesh, BJP president Amit Shah said on Wednesday.

Blaming the Congress government in Assam for the continuing infiltration, Shah said the BJP was determined not to let the illegals infringe upon the rights of people in Assam and the Bodoland region.

Shah said this while addressing a public rally organised by the Bodoland Peoples Front (BPF) to mark Bodoland Day.

Illegal infiltration started in Assam after the Congress resorted to vote bank politics. The infiltrators from Bangladesh have spread across the state. They have infringed upon the rights of local youths, be they from tea gardens or Hindi-speaking community or Bodoland. If a BJP-BPF government comes to power in Assam, we are going to ensure that there is no infiltration in Assam.

The BJP president termed the alliance between his party and the BPF a historic one and said it will go a long way in ensuring development in the state, and the Bodo areas in particular.
