Amit Shah sets the 2024 deadline for NRC, says all infiltrators will be expelled by then
CHAKRADHARPUR/BAHARAGORA: head of BJP Amit Shah On Monday, he set a deadline for 2024 to implement the hugely divisive NRC across the country, stating that each and every infiltrator will be identified and expelled before the next general election.
Despite the admission by some BJP leaders in West Bengal that the NRC arrests had cost the party dearly in recent polls conducted there, the Union Interior Minister told rallies in neighboring Jharkhand that the national exercise will be carried out despite the reservations expressed by the opposition parties.
Today, I want to tell you that before the 2024 surveys, the NRC will be conducted throughout the country and each and every one of the infiltrates identified and expelled.
Rahul Baba (leader of Congress Rahul Gandhi ) says not to eject them. Where will they go, what will they eat? But I assure you that before the country goes to the polls in 2024, all illegal immigrants will be expelled, Shah said at election rallies in Chakradharpur and Baharagora.
Shah said that national problems such as the uprooting of terrorism, Naxalism and the construction of a great Ram temple in Ayodhya were as important in the Jharkhand elections as local issues such as development.
Compiling the dispute of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri mosque once again, the president of BJP alleged that Congress tried to thwart the hearing of the case in the Supreme Court.
Congressional leaders would tell the Supreme Court that there is no need to hear the case of Ram Janmabhoomi. With the backing of his (town), we present that it be carried forward, and the result is that the apex court ruled that only a temple of Ram will be built in Ayodhya, he said.
He also attacked the JMM-Congress-RJD alliance, which is crossing swords with the BJP for the election laurel in Jharkhand.
The BJP leader also gave credit to the BJP state government for uprooting the Maoist threat and for bringing development.
When Congress was in power, it shot at students waving for the state of Jharkhand and attacked them with batons. Now Hemant Soren (JMM leader) is sitting in the laps of the same Congress so he can become the prime minister, he said.
Referring to the vikas ki Ganga that flow in Jharkhand due to the double-engine growth that the Center and state governments had introduced together, Shah said the Modi government built AIIMS in Deoghar, and will now build an airport there and also in Bokaro, Dumka and Jamshedpur.
About 20 lakh farmers have benefited from the crop insurance scheme, he said.
Within five years, the Narendra Modi The government and the dispensation uprooted Naxalism and paved the way for the development of the state, he said.
He said Raghubar Das provided a zero corruption government and gave the state political stability. The Das government is the first in Jharkhand's history to complete its full term.
Rahul Gandhi is in Jharkhand today. I challenge him to give an account of what Congress governments have done for Jharkhand during 55 years of their rule. We will also give an account of what we have done in five years, he said.
Addressing the opposition alliance, the head of BJP said: The parties that sell voting tickets, exploit adivasis, opposed the creation of Jharkhand and surrendered to corruption involving millions and billions of rupees cannot lead to the state forward.
