Itanagar, Sep 14: Appreciating the ongoing operation 'clean drive' by various students' bodies to flush out illegal Bangladeshis from Arunachal Pradesh the All Nyishi Youth Association (ANYA) has suggested the government to take such steps that the deported migrants do not return.
The students' body urged the state government to direct the labour commission to reduce the daily wage of private labourers from the current Rs 150 per day (plus a meal) to Rs 75, saying it was the lure of the comparatively higher wage that made Bangladeshi labourers flock the state capital.
Fixing a minimum wage for private labourers in consonance with the government labourers would discourage such migrations, the ANYA said adding private individual or companies who violate the rule should be penalised.
Supporting the Papum Pare district administration's modalities on the inner line permit, the ANYA, however, suggested that maintaining a labour card system be made mandatory for the private employers, and that they be asked to print three sets of labourer cards for records, fill up declaration forms and submit them to the nearest police station.
Various students' bodies throughout the state launched the 'clean drive' movement against illegal migrants since Friday and deported over hundred Bangladeshis.
