NEW DELHI, Sept 5:Union Minister of State (MoS) in Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) with Independent Charge of Northeast, Dr Jitendra Singh, in a statement today asserted that the Rohingyas will have to leave India.
Nullifying ambiguity in the regard, he  said that New Delhi has always maintained its stand that the Rohingyas will have to return to their land.
“It is more than obvious and the Home Ministry has time and again reiterated India’s position as far as Rohingya sentiments are concerned is clear, they have to go back,” said Dr Jitendra Singh.
“This also equally applies to the Rohingyas, who have got illegally settled in different parts of Kashmir including Jammu and Kashmir and I am sure there is no ambiguity about it,” said Dr Jitendra Singh.
Earlier in the day, Minister of State (MoS) Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju shunned reports of Centre cracking whip over Rohingya Muslims in regard with their deportation and said that no other nation has accepted refugees as India.
Rijiju said that India will not use force for deportation and rather will follow legal procedure in this connection.
Two Rohingya Muslim refugees yesterday urged the Supreme Court to direct the Central Government not to deport them to Myanmar.
