According to their source,“Mother of the accused youth, who assaulted media persons and also used abusive language at Bathindi area, is office bearer of Mahila Morcha of BJP and joined the BJP in 2013…. and that is why state BJP can not afford to take action against the office bearer”According to order no 510 GAD of 2017 dated 24.4.2017, the state government constituted a group of ministers to look into the issue of Rohingyas.
The order demands of the group of ministers to examine all relevant aspects of these illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar and furnish a report containing appropriate recommendations. The report was supposed to be submitted within two months. Although the period has finished, the report hasn’t been filed.
