Stateless People

Despite the September 2011 agreement on protocol of exchange concerning 51000 people in 162 enclaves between India and Bangladesh, there has been little headway at the ground level. A recently published report in Indian Express (see link below) reported that a German woman of Polish origin have declared to extend financial support towards a child’s education. She has already contacted ontacted Diptiman Sengupta, secretary of the India-Bangladesh Enclave Exchange Coordination Committee (BBEECC). In fact BBEECC has nominated two girls one from Indian side and one from Bangladesh side.
