The Union Government was today severely pulled up by a Delhi Court for its failure to act against three crore illegal Bangladeshi migrants, staying here and enjoying the privileges meant for Indian citizens, reports PTI.
The court made the stinging remarks while awarding life sentence and 10 years in prison to two Bangladeshi nationals respectively in a case of dacoity-cum-murder bid.
“Our country has become a haven for all these criminal elements who are most ruthless and brutal with anybody who come in their way.
“While the genuine citizens of this country continue to suffer in abject poverty, what is it that prevents a firm, resolute, intense Government action against these three crores Bangladeshi nationals illegally staying in India, enjoying all benefits which are otherwise the entitlements of citizens,” said Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Kamini Lau.
“It is this lack of concerted governmental/administrative action which has compelled the courts of law to step in,” she added.
