Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal today displayed shocking ignorance regarding his understanding of NRC while answering a question on his views on BJP leader Manoj Tiwari’s demand of implementing NRC in Delhi. Kejriwal said that if NRC is implemented in Delhi, BJP leader Manoj Tiwari would be the first one to leave Delhi.

The NRC which stands for National Register of Citizens is a register containing names of all genuine Indian citizens. It was first prepared in 1951. It is currently being implemented in the north-eastern state of Assam, which had a long-standing issue of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants infiltrating and settling in the state. In a recently published list of NRC, over 3.1 crore people were included while 19 lakh people were excluded from the list.

The NRC is strictly to identify the illegal immigrants living in the country and is not aimed at Indians living in states different from their birthplaces. Former AAP leader Kapil Mishra took a swipe at Kejriwal saying that NRC is National Register of Citizens and not Delhi Register of Citizens that Indians will have to go outside. Mishra also alleged that Kejriwal is talking like an illiterate to save Rohingya and Bangladeshi infiltrators living in the national capital.

Delhi BJP leader Manoj Tiwari had said recently that the situation in Delhi is worsening due to the presence of illegal immigrants who pose a threat to the safety of people in Delhi. Tiwari assured that the BJP government will implement the NRC in Delhi as well just like they have done it in Assam.

Home Minister Amit Shah recently asserted that NRC will be implemented across the country and illegal immigrants will be deported back to their countries through legal means. Citing BJP’s manifesto, Amit Shah said that they had mentioned in their manifesto that NRC will be carried out across the country and for this, they have been given the 2019 mandate.
