India is not 'Dharmashala', says Raman Singh over NRC
He told reporters in Durg district that those who could not prove their nationality should leave the country.
Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh today said that the issue of National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Assam should not be hyped up as India was not a "dharamshala" (guest house) where foreigners would keep on infiltrating.
"Anybody comes here and start living. They must be dragged out, and for this purpose, only such persons have been identified (in Assam)," he said.
He said the exercise was the result of an eight-year-long protest by the Assamese youth.
"The Supreme Court had formed a committee which was constituted during the Congress' rule...Today, the matter is being twisted," he claimed.
