Land swapping deal with Bangladesh; permanent solution to stop infiltration: Modi
Guwahati (Nov. 30, 2014): Prime Minister Modi today said all roads used for infiltration from Bangladesh to Assam will be plugged and the Centre will go ahead with the land swapping deal with the neighbouring country for a permanent solution to the long-pending problem.
"I will make such arrangements after which all roads will be closed for Bangladeshis coming and destroying Assam daily. Believe my word that land swapping deal will be done for a permanent solution to this problem of Assam," Modi told a party workers' rally here.
He said "with full responsibility" that handing over of land (to Bangladesh) will be done only for security of people of Assam and the border and not for "any harm to Assam in future."
Assuring people that there will be no compromise on Assam's security, Modi said he is aware of the sentiment of the people of the state regarding the land swapping agreement.
