Aam Aadmi Party targeted BJP in Rohingya case. AAP leader Saurabh Bhardwaj tweeted and said, BJP is the one who brought Rohingyas in the country and now settles them. Even the BJP people patting their backs. He said, a very big conspiracy of BJP to play with the security of the country was exposed. The BJP admitted that thousands of Rohingyas were settled in Delhi by the BJP. Now preparations are on to give them pucca houses and shops. The people of Delhi will not allow this to happen at all.

BJP leader Kapil Mishra tweeted, ‘Rohingya and Bangladeshi refugees are not infiltrators. Black businesses like drugs, human trafficking, jihad are run from their settlements. Taking them into custody and then deporting them is the only solution. He appealed to Hardeep Puri to provide flats and security to Kashmiri Pandits and Hindu Sikhs who came from Afghanistan before Rohingya. Hindu refugees from Pakistan have been living in slums without electricity for years. The benefits of this wonderful refugee policy have not reached them.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad Central Working President Alok Kumar said that he was shocked to see Hardeep Puri’s statement giving flats to Rohingyas. We would like to remind Hardeep Puri of Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement on 10 December 2020 that Rohingyas will never be accepted in India. Alok Kumar said that Rohingyas are not refugees, they are infiltrators. This has also been the stand of the Government of India in the Supreme Court. We would appeal to the Government of India to reconsider the issue and make arrangements to deport the Rohingyas instead of providing them accommodation.

According to RSS sources, the Sangh is also not happy with the decision. Union sources said that this decision will go against the CAA. Also, what will happen to the detention centers for Rohingya refugees that have been set up in Assam?

The Home Ministry’s clarification has come after the controversy escalated in this matter. According to the law, illegal Rohingyas are to be kept in detention centers till they are deported, the Home Ministry said. The Delhi government has not declared the present location as a detention center. They have been instructed to do so immediately. The Delhi government proposed to relocate the Rohingyas to a new location.
