Expedite Rohingya repatriation

It would be unwise to resettle the Rohingyas in Bhasan Char instead of creating pressure on Myanmar government to take them back. Almost one million Rohingyas had fled to Bangladesh over the past year. Without any solution in sight, they are turning out to be a burden for the host nation. The government should do everything possible to increase diplomatic pressure on Myanmar to expedite the repatriation of Rohingyas.
