Itanagar, Sep 15 (UNI) More than 3,000 illegal migrants were detected during the first phase of the All Nyishi Students' Union (ANSU) ''Operation Clean Drive'' programme.
The ANSU president said here today that all the suspected illegal immigrants were handed over to the district administration for further verification at various police stations.
''The immigrants, hailing from different communities and religious backgrounds, had left voluntarily after a quit notice was served on September 6,'' he said.
''The union would notify its next phase of agitation when required,'' he said and warned that action would be taken against any person indulging in such operations in the name of the union during the suspension of Operation Clean Drive.
While appreciating the organisations carrying out similar operations, the ANSU advocated that certain modalities should be exercised and maintained in order to avoid any unwarranted repercussions for the common people.
The Union clarified that the operation was not against any particular religious group or community but had been launched against those having no legal document so as to prove his or her entry into the state.
It had also organised rounds of discussions with different religious communities in order to avoid any misunderstanding and misinterpretation, he added.
