Mumbai, Sept 30 (UNI) Former BJP MP Dr Kirit Somaiya today alleged that ration cards were being issued to many Bangladeshis in north-east Mumbai area, the constituency that he had represented earlier.
Dr Somaiya has demanded detailed investigation on the issue in areas with high Bangladeshi population, such as Shivaji Nagar and Bainganwadi.
Talking to reporters here, Dr Somaiya alleged that it was a well-designed master plan to convert selected locations in Mumbai into ''Mini Bangladesh''. The modus operandi is the same as Assam, he alleged.
He said around 10,000 new ration cards were issued by the Govandi Rationing Office in the first eight months of 2008, against the 8,000 for whole of Bandra-Andheri zone for the same period.
