Hostile attitude of West Bengal Police (naturally abetted by GoWB) when it comes to identification and deportation of illegal immigrants.

No time to verify ID proofs: Cops on migrant workers
The police also claimed that the West Bengal police never cooperated with them in the past in verifying the documents of these ‘migrants’. “They are not even providing facilities to stay there to verify the documents of these people,” said a police officer in HAL Police Station. “We had spent Rs 5 to Rs 6 lakh when we took 60 Bangladeshis to West Bengal, but they refused to accept them, saying they are not receiving any Bangladeshis from Karnataka,” said the officer, adding thereare a lot of practical problems in deporting them.

After April 2010 entire WB police will have to be demobilized.
Its too full of jihadi enablers.

All will have to be interviewed and only select few will be retained and posted elsewhere.

Why not fly them straight to Dhaka by air Or deport via Assam land border? Central government needs to put in place a process that works else state governments wont take the effort next time.
My peev is that they are not able to fix relatively lower level problems yet think setting off NCR nuke is a good idea.

WB police are basically CPM fellows. So are most of the GoWB staff. So we can not expect them to take any serious action on the Jihadis. They may in fact take action on the TMC fellows if there is any chance. I am told they have TMC more than BJP.

plus emasculated. Atleast for a year or two after the next govt comes to power, more than 100,000 CAPFs like CRPF will have to provide security. Additionally the next govt can immediately start raising a force of retired army personnel to carry out policing duties. A precedent for this exists when Nitish Kumar became CM of Bihar in 2005. He immediately raised a force of 5000 retired army personnel to back up the regular police. The name of the force is SAP or special auxiliary Police.

Here is the link describing the concept of SAP

Mamata Banerjee wants to divide and break away Hindu tribals to reduce Hindu numbers.

Sangh Parivar’s mass marriage of tribal people hits speed breaker in Bengal

Mass marriages of tribal people from poor economic backgrounds conducted by different Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-affiliated organizations have hit a hurdle in West Bengal with the Mamata Banerjee administration treating these events as the Sangh Parivar’s attempt to convert the followers of the Sari/Sarna religion into Hindus.

The latest event in Alipurduar was being organised by the RSS-affiliated Shree Hari Satang Samiti, in association with Alipurduar Ganabibaho Samiti, which, too, is an RSS-inspired organisation. “We have been conducting similar events for several years. Each time, we only informed the administration in writing about the event and even received the administration’s assistance. Never did the question of obtaining written permission arise,” Ratan Tarafdar, secretary of Alipurduar Ganabibaho Samiti, said.

Various RSS-affiliated organizations, including the VHP, Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram, Sewa Bharati and Shri Hari Satsang Samiti have been organizing mass marriages for several years. but this is the first time they are facing obstacles from the administration.

The impetus to stop mass marriages may have come on February 2, when activists of the Jharkhand Disom Party (JDP) vandalised the Malda venue of the mass marriage being organised by the VHP. They had alleged that the marriages were being conducted in the Vedic way, involving Brahmins, whereas tribal marriages involve no Brahmins.

“These mass marriages are RSS’ ploy to turn Sarna followers into Hindus, so that the number of Hindus increases and Sarna followers decrease in the Census. Showing us in lower numbers is their way of depriving followers of Sarna of a separate religion code,” said Lakshmi Kanta Hansda, a Bharatiya Adivasi Ekta Manch leader, whose organization along with several other tribal outfits including the JDP, has been campaigning for months for a separate religion code for Sarna followers in the Census. “We will resist the RSS’s drive to convert tribals to Hinduism and show Sarna followers in lower numbers,” declared JDP state unit secretary Mohan Hansda.

The campaign also urged the state’s Scheduled Tribe (ST) population to list Sarna as their religion during the census of 2021.

RSS’ south Bengal unit secretary Jisnu Basu lashed out at Banerjee and accused her of dividing people in the name of caste and religion.

“I also smell a conspiracy. Are all of the state’s tribal people followers of Sarna religion, according to the census of 2011? Aren’t there tribal people who consider themselves as Hindus? In that case, is there a concerted effort to reduce the number of Hindus?” Basu asked.


In the Census, Sari and Sarna are included as ‘other religious practices’. In the 2011 census, 942,297 people in West Bengal, or 1.03 per cent of the state’s population, had registered themselves as followers of other religious practices, while the state’s ST population stood at 5.8 per cent.
