Illegal immigrants living on every inch of this country will be identified and deported: Home Minister Amit Shah in Rajya Sabha

MoS Home Nityanad Rai said that government is going to approach the Supreme Court to extend the deadline of 31 July for publication of final National Register of Citizens.

On Wednesday Union Home Minister Amit Shah clearly stated the government’s intent to deal with the menace of illegal immigration. During the discussion on National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the Parliament, Home Minister Amit Shah issued a strict warning to the illegal immigrants in the country, saying every one of them will be identified and deported.

Answering to that question, Amit Shah said currently NRC is being implemented in Assam as it was a part of Assam Accord, and the manifesto based on which BJP came back to power also mentions it. He said that actions will be taken to identify every illegal infiltrator in the country and deport them back as per the international law.

“We will ensure that all the illegal immigrants and infiltrators living on every inch of this country will be identified and deport them as per the international law,” the Home Minister said in Rajya Sabha.

Replying to a question by AGP MP Birendra Prasad Baishya on the what the government plans to do after the publication of final NRC on 31st July, MoS Home Nityanand Rai said that government has received around 25 lakh applications applying for inclusion and exclusion in the NRC in Assam. There are applications for inclusions for names that have been excluded in the draft, and there are also objections against the inclusion of names of people in the draft. He informed the house that to resolve all these applications, the government is going to approach the Supreme Court to extend the deadline of 31 July for publication of final National Register of Citizens.

The NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah have been tough on the issue of illegal immigration in the country. On Tuesday, the Union government had observed that it has adopted a multi-pronged approach to ensure effective surveillance and domination of international borders to check infiltration of illegal immigrants.

The Home Ministry had informed that to deal with such illegal immigrants, the powers of the Central Government under Section 3 of The Foreigners Act, 1946, have been enforced to detect detain and deport illegal foreign nationals.

The Modi government is also a strong proponent of National Register of Citizens (NRC) as it hopes that it will solve the basic issue of illegal immigration in the country. The BJP intends to carry out NRC across the country, especially in North-Eastern states and West Bengal, which borders Bangladesh.
