Well, foreign born Bangladeshis are different and we even have one US born athlete representing us in Olympics this year. But both his parents are from Bangladesh.

I would rather lose with 11 Bangladeshi than import West Bengalis and win.
My guess is that, the question was not asked on the base of should/should not. But if someone wants to, what are the technicality. Why would we/they want that is hypothetical.
