Bangladesh Was A “Great Mistake”: BJP Legislator

No Comments Share:

GUWAHATI: BJP legislator from Hojai Shiladitya Dev  on Monday courted controversy yet again, calling the creation of Bangladesh a “great mistake” because of which Assam has been facing “Muslim influx” for decades and suggesting that India should have annexed the country after the liberation war.

 “Even as the erstwhile East Pakistan was liberated, a mistake committed by (then Prime Minister) Indira Gandhi and the then Congress government was not merging the newly-created Bangladesh with India.
In fact, creation of Bangladesh was itself a great mistake. But that mistake could have been offset had Bangladesh been made a part of India,” Dev told a local news channel in Nagaon on Monday.
