A misconception prevails among many people outside Assam that “lakhs” of “Bangladeshis” are residing in Assam and exercising franchise. This misconception developed due to publicity of the AASU for more than three decades-long period with the help of some press and political parties like BJP, a high bureaucrat like S.L. Shakdar, and a Governor of Assam, S.K. Sinha. Dr. Ahmed, with the help of mostly public documents, shows that all this is emotional exaggeration, has no empirical or statistical foundation, and as such is nothing more than a self-composed chorus of some pseudo-intellectuals.
