A film actress from Bangladesh Anju Ghosh joined the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) in the presence of the party’s state president Dilip Ghosh in Kolkata today.
At the event, the Bangla film star Ghosh was handed over a BJP flag.
When asked by the media about her present citizenship status, she declined to say anything. In 1989, her film ”Beder Meye Josna” (Josna, the gypsey daughter) made a record of being the highest grosser in Bangladesh film history.
Earlier, the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, the government plans to change the definition of illegal migrants.
The bill, introduced in the Lok Sabha on July 15, 2016, seeks to amend the Citizenship Act, 1955 to provide citizenship to illegal migrants, from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan, who are of Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi or Christian extraction. However, the Act doesn’t have a provision for Muslim sects like Shias and Ahmediyas who also face persecution in Pakistan.
