BJP MP from Mangaldoi, Dilip Saikia on Monday appealed union home minister Amit Shah to bring a stringent law to bring ‘population’ under control while expressing serious concern over the unabated influx from Bangladesh.

Raising the issue under Rule 377 in the Lok Sabha, Saikia has also appealed Shah to raise the matter with the Bangladesh government.

“I appealed to the home minister to put pressure on the Bangladesh government to take back the illegal Bangladeshis,” said Saikia.

He said that in the last five years there was an increase of 3 lakh population in his constituency.

“Under Siphajhar assembly constituency more than 70, 000 bigha of land has been occupied by the illegal Bangladeshis,” he said in the Parliament.
