Attacks on Bihari Migrants in Gujarat must end: Dr. Birbal Jha

 

Our Correspondent / New Delhi

Dr Birbal JhaAuthor and well known social worker Dr. Birbal Jha has expressed deep concern over the attack and exodus of Hindi speaking people from Gujarat and asked the governments to take strict action against those inciting violence against people of Bihar, UP and Jharkhand in particular.

“The recent attacks on Bihari migrants and others in Gujarat, the land of Mahatma Gandhi is a blot on the democratic structure and values of the country and such a violence and hatred towards any community in the country must be dealt with iron hand. The mastermind behind such anti-social and anti-national acts must be identified, prosecuted under the appropriate law in place and punished for the sake of national integrity. Those guilty of intending to sabotage the social fabric and taking undue advantage of the situation for their personal gains must not go scot-free,” said Dr. Jha while addressing a gathering of hundreds of migrants from Bihar in New Delhi

He said that safety, security and the rights of mobility of citizens from one place to another in the country enshrined in the constitution of India must be ensured. “It is obligatory for the government in place to ensure that every citizen has the freedom to move freely throughout the country, reside and settle in any part of the country and also can practice any valid profession or to carry on any occupation, trade or business,” he stressed.

Dr. Jha, who is also Chairman of Mithilalok Foundation, a non-governmental organization based in New said: “Bihari migrant workers are a workforce to reckon with as they play a big role in raising local economy and industrial growth, adding value to the place they move and relocate in search of jobs in order to eke out their livelihood. Many of human resource-based industry will instantly collapse and see the shut-down in the case of destabilizing them outside their home state, where they work.”
