New Delhi: The President of BJP Amit Shah said that “those who could not prove their citizenship, their name have been removed from the list of National Register of Citizens (NRC)”. He also added “ those, whose names are not in the list are intruders but this is not the final one. They can raise the alarm of objections and can appeal for the complete procedure then it will be decided whether their name will be on the list or not”. Mr. Shah said for BJP NRC is an issue of National Security. Government top priority is to safeguard our borders. He said there is confusion being spread that the names of Indian citizens have been removed from the list, just to mislead the people so the NRC is helping to sort out this confusion.
Mr. Shah said reminding the Congress that the NRC was their Idea. The Assam Accord was Signed by then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on August 14, 1984. So, he asked Congress that how can they raise questions about the NRC today? The Congress is known for changing its stand on political issues. Congress to clear their stand and not indulge in vote bank politics. He also slams the Congress for not completing the NRC, he said “You did not have the guts to prepare the list and send back the infiltrators. For vote bank politics, how can you question the NRC procedure?”
