Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party today organized a protest here, demanding the Union government to immediately deport Rohingya and Bangladeshi immigrants from the state.

The protest, held at the Exhibition Ground in Jammu, was led by JKNPP chairman Harsh Dev Singh, who claimed the immigrants were involved in illegal activities.

The protesters raised slogans calling for the deportation of the immigrants and burnt an effigy of the central government.

Singh ruled that the central government and Jammu and Kashmir Governor were not serious about resolving the issue which, he said, could lead to tension in Jammu province.

He said the demography of Jammu city and surrounding areas were "under threat" because of the immigrants, adding that their settlements have become a center of serious crimes, including drug and human trafficking.
