BJP chief Amit Shah said on Saturday that Indians have the right to the country’s resources, and it is not a ‘dharamshala’ where illegal immigrants can come to settle down.
Mr Shah said while describing illegal immigration as threat to the country, National Register of Citizens (NRC) is a way to solve the basic problems of the country and should not be connected to the BJP.
“NRC should not be seen by connecting it with the BJP only. It is a way to solve the country’s basic problems. How is it possible that anyone can come and settle down here? The country cannot run like this. Those who are its citizens should stay here only and they only have the right to the resources of this country.
“They (intruders) should be identified. Delete their names from the electoral roll. The BJP clearly believes that they should be identified and deported. Intruders are also threaten the security of the country,” he said while replying to a question on NRC.
“This country is not a dharamshala (charitable shelter home) that anyone can come and settle down here,” Mr Shah said while speaking at the function organised by leading media group.
