India is not a ‘dharamshala’ for illegal immigrants, they should be identified and deported: BJP Chief Amit Shah

The BJP chief Amit Shah in the past had also said that illegal migrants were like termites, and each one of them would be struck off the electoral roll.

On Saturday, speaking at an event, BJP’s national president Amit Shah clearly stated that Indians have the right to the country’s resources, and it is not a ‘dharamshala’ where illegal immigrants can come to settle down.

According to the reports, Amit Shah describing illegal immigrants as a security threat to the country, he said National Register of Citizens is the only way to solve the basic problems of the country and it should not be connected to the BJP.

“NRC should not be seen by connecting it with the BJP only. It is a way to solve the country’s basic problems. How is it possible that anyone can come and settle down here? The country cannot run like this. Those who are its citizens should stay here only and they only have the right to the resources of this country. This country is not a ‘dharamshala’ that anyone can come and settle down here,” Amit Shah said while speaking at the Jagran Forum organised by the Dainik Jagran media group.

Taking on opposition over the issue, Amit Shah slammed the opposition parties over their stand on the issue. He accused the opposition parties of using illegal immigrants as a vote bank for 70 years who have now become a threat to the country and added that BJP believes in taking tough decisions which are in the interest of the country.

He further added that illegal immigrants should be identified first and their names should be deleted from the electoral roll. “The BJP clearly believes that they should be identified and deported. Intruders are also threatening the security of the country”, he said while replying to a question on NRC.

Amit Shah during an election rally in Rajasthan had reiterated his party’s position on the issue of illegal immigrants, saying that the government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi will ensure that “each and every infiltrator is identified and thrown out of the country”. The BJP chief Amit Shah in the past had also said that illegal migrants were like termites, and each one of them would be struck off the electoral roll.

To drive out the illegal immigrants residing in the state of the Assam, the Supreme Court had ordered to update the National Register of Citizens in the state. Taking it into cognizance, the government of Assam and Union Home Ministry had initiated to prepare a draft, which was published on July 30, 2018. The list had included the names of 2.9 crore people out of the total applications of 3.29 crore.
