Sting Newz Desk: Union Minister V K Singh today asked the states to come down “heavily” on the unauthorised agents who facilitate illegal immigration. He was addressing the first ‘Outreach Conference’ of the Ministry of External Affairs with the Telangana government on consular, passport and diaspora issues here.
“Our biggest problem is of illegal agents. This is one of the problems which we have not been able to overcome so far, and we seek assistance of the states to come down very heavily on this particular problem,” the Minister of State for External Affairs said. “Regular, registered agents nominate various sub-agents, who work illegally. Such sub-agents carry out illegal immigration. And most of the problems with our workers, who go abroad, are due to these agents. The workers are taken on fake documents or tourist visas and the agents do not inform our embassies, thus they (workers) don’t remain registered with us,” Singh said.
