India should raise its voice for the safety & security of BD Hindu minorities : Advani

Kolkata, July 10 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani Sunday said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, during his visit to Bangladesh, should bring up the issue of infiltration and illegal migration from the neighbouring country.

‘I have heard that the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is going for a visit to Bangladesh. The chief minister of West Bengal will also go with him. It’s good. But during his visit, he should bring up the issue of continuous illegal migration and infiltration from the Bangladesh and ensure the safety and respect of the Hindu community in Bangladesh,’ said Advani.

Manmohan Singh is scheduled to visit Dhaka Sept 6-7.

Taking a dig at the Gandhi family, the 83-year-old leader said: ‘Nobody did anything for this country other than the members of the Gandhi family. Only this family did all developmental works for this country. If you look at the name of the universities of the country, they are named after three people only – Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.’

‘You will not find many institutions named after the great sons of this country. Democracy has been converted to dynasty rule,’ said Advani, who was in the city to observe the 110th birth anniversary of Bharatiya Jan Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mukherjee.

‘Every year, we celebrate the birthday of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee in order to inform the people about the sacrifices made by him for the integration of India,’ he added.
