  • Anand Kumar replies: Illegal immigration is not getting the attention it should for various reasons. First and foremost, our country is having a coalition government which is always struggling for its survival. As the security impact of the illegal immigration is of silent nature and seen only over a period of time, it is not getting the attention it deserves. Moreover, the issue gets immediately communalised because most migrants coming from Bangladesh are Muslims. Hence, the government does not want to touch this issue.
