Abstract

Illegal migration from Bangladesh over the decades has converted the numerical strength of the migrant population into an inevitable source of electoral strength. The inability of the opposition political parties to provide a counter narrative, and the acceptance of the economic utility of the migrants at the popular level nullifies the possibility of any future scenario where presence of migrants is properly addressed.

Keywords: India, Northeast, Migration, Bangladesh, Assam
