Union government is mulling to set up a task force to identify and deport illegal immigrants from Assam, this was informed by Minister of State for Home Affairs (MoS) Kiren Rijiju in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

“The government has taken up the issue of illegal immigration with Bangladesh during various bilateral meetings such as Joint Working Group on Security, Director General-level talks between Border Security Force and Border Guard Bangladesh, Home Secretary-level talks, etc,” said Rijiju, adding, “Even in the last home secretary-level talks in December 2016, India expressed concerns over illegal migration from Bangladesh and requested the neighbouring country to share real time information on activities of criminal networks engaged in illegal border crossing.”

Rijiju further shared that India and Bangladesh have also put in place a coordinated border management plan to address the problems arising from illegal border crossing.
