Terming Rohingya refugees a threat to India's national security , Union home minister Rajnath Singh said here on Tuesday that “the illegal foreign immigrants will be strongly dealt with“.
In August, the Centre had declared that the Rohingyas from Myanmar, living in dif ferent parts of the country , posed serious security challenges as they could be recruited by terror groups, and asked state governments to identify and deport them.

A communication issued by the Union ministry of home affairs said the infiltration of these refugees from Rakhine state of Myanmar to several parts of India infringed on the rights of Indian citizens, besides burdening the limited resources of the country .

Over 40,000 Rohingyas largely stay in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, UP, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan. Singh's comment at a press conference in Jammu -ille gally inhabited by over 6,000 Rohingyas -on the last day of his four-day visit to the Valley, reflected deliberation and review of the Centre's policy so far in dealing with the refugee crisis.

In light of the repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB), Singh said it seems that Pakistan doesn't want to normalise relations with India. Breaching the truce has become a routine affair for Pakistan, with over 400 ceasefire violations reported every year since 2014, he added.

To ensure the safety of civilians inhabiting the border areas, the Centre has decided to construct bunkers. “80 bunkers have already been built and more are coming up,“ Singh assured.
