They have no right to stay here: Advani

Kolkata Feb. 5. The Deputy Prime Minister, L .K. Advani, today said Bangladeshi infiltrators have "no right" to reside here permanently.

``Today in India, a large number of Bangladeshis are coming in. In no country of the world, such illegal immigration takes place," he told newspersons, during a 50-minute stopover of his special flight for refuelling here on way to New Delhi from Singapore.

Referring to the situation that had developed in Coochbehar district, over the deportation of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants by the BSF, Mr. Advani said he spoke to the External Affairs Minister in Delhi on the issue and had been informed that the External Affairs Ministry, the Union Home Ministry and BSF officials had held a discussion on the situation in New Delhi today.
