Megalaya Governor Ranjit Shekhar Mooshahary on Friday came out in open support of the oust-Bangladeshi agitation re-launched by the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and North-East Students’ Organisation (NESO) and said it was everybody’s responsibility to ensure that these people did not stay “here or in anywhere else in our country”.

“It is for all of us to find out those migrants who are not citizens of our country and ensure that they do not stay here (in Assam and the Northeast) or anywhere else in our country,” Mooshahary said,at the same time appreciating the AASU and NESO for re-launch of the oust-Bangladeshi movement on Thursday.

Mooshahary was inaugurating a national debate competition at the Cotton Colllege State University here,with AASU adviser Samujjal Bhattacharyya seated on the dais.

He in fact congratulated the AASU leader for having created a renewed public opinion on the Bangladeshi influx issue by organising a massive rally here on Thursday and described infiltration as a major problem of the region.

Dwelling on the recent violence in Kokrajhar and other districts,Mooshahary described it as result of a clash of interest between indigenous people and migrants. “It is an outcome of clash of interest between migrants and indigenous people. But one must keep in mind that all migrants are not illegal migrants,there are Indian citizens as well,” he said.
