BJP meet hails Modi, Sonowal for NRC
Hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal for implementing National Register of Citizens (NRC), the BJP on Sunday reiterated that after identification, each and every illegal infiltrator will be deported.
The BJP National Executive passed a resolution on NRC which asserted that the government was committed to defending the interest of its people and will ensure that they are not deprived of citizenship.
"The BJP has been speaking continuously that the government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not allow the illegal infiltrators to use India as a safe shelter. Each infiltrator will be identified and deported," the resolution said.
It also said that the Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, and Jains in neighboring countries who seek refugee status will be given shelter without hesitation.
"The BJP understands the seriousness of the problem of those who want to come to India to take shelter for saving lives, religion and for security. With this purpose, the BJP supports the Citizenship Amendment Bill," it said.
