BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday said that all infiltrators from Bangladesh would be identified and made to leave India. 

Addressing BJP office bearers and workers during one-day visit to Jaipur in Rajasthan, Shah said that the party would not allow any Bangladeshi infiltrator to live in India. Shah also used the opportunity to attack the critics of National Register of Citizens draft release by the Assam government. 

He said that those not in favour of Assam NRC are merely doing votebank politics in the name of protection of human rights.

“Those who are worried about their votebank are talking about human rights violation. They are not bothered about the country and the poor people of the country,” said the BJP president on the issue of Assam NRC.

Attacking West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief, Amit Shah, “The leader of West Bengal (Mamata Banerjee) is also bothered about the well being of those living in India illegally. She is not bothered about the Indians.”

The BJP chief further talked about the Citizen Amendment Bill, saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought it to benefit migrants. 

He said that Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Jain migrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh are not illegal immigrants but refugees, and they would be given Indian citizenship.

Addressing the BJP members on the issue of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Shah said that no alliance of opposition parties would be able to defeat the BJP.

He also targeted the Congress party president Rahul Gandhi saying, “Rahul baba ka kehna hai ki Congress teeno rajyo ka chunaav jeetegi. Mujhe lagta hai Rahul baba ko Mungeri lal ke sapne dekhna band kar dena chahiye (Rahul baba says that the Congress will win elections in all three states. I feel Rahul baba should stop day dreaming).”

Detect, delete and deport, says Ram Madhav: BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said people excluded from the final list of Assam-specific National Register of Citizens would be de-franchised and deported to their country, while Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal suggested that the NRC be implemented across India.

Addressing a seminar on ‘NRC: Defending the Borders, Securing the Culture’, Madhav said the NRC is being updated as part of the ‘Assam Accord’ signed in 1985 under which the government had made a commitment to “detect, delete and deport” all illegal immigrants from the state. 

“The NRC will ensure the detection of all illegal immigrants. The next step will be delete - means deletion of names of illegal immigrants from voters list and deprive them from all government benefits. The next stage will be deportation,” he said.

Sonowal said genuine citizens of India would get adequate opportunities to prove their citizenship and include their names in the final list of the NRC. 

“The NRC should be implemented in all states. This is a document which can protect all Indians. Those who will be excluded from the NRC in Assam can go to other states. So we will have to take strong step,” he said at the seminar, organised by think-tank ‘Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini’.
