Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah Tuesday said the process of evicting "illegal infiltrators" from the country will not stop.
Notably, the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC) recently published in Assam had identified nearly 40 lakh, illegal immigrants.
Referring to the NRC, Shah said, "The process to evict illegal infiltrators will not stop, irrespective of the Congress' opposition."
The Congress is raising issues to deflect the attention from crucial subjects, he said, adding that "there is no competition to the BJP in respect of development, security, and nationalism."
He was addressing BJP workers here at the 'Karyakarta Mahakumbh' (grand assembly of party workers), being held on the occasion of birth anniversary of RSS ideologue and Bharatiya Jana Sangh (BJS) co-founder Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya.
Instead of making such claims, Gandhi should introspect his party's losses in elections in various states after 2014, the senior BJP leader said.
Since 2014, the Congress has been ousted from every state. The BJP's vote share and the number of seats have increased in places where its presence was negligible, Shah said.
