The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah said on Saturday in Jaipur that Bangladeshi migrants are like “termites” and each one of them will be struck off the electoral rolls.
A report published in the The Times of India stated that Shah while referring to the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC) recently published in Assam, said, “The BJP Government brought NRC and prima facie identified nearly 40 lakh illegal immigrants.”
The BJP government will pick out each and every “infiltrator”, he said. The report further quoted Shah as saying, “BJP sarkaar ek-ek ghuspaithiye ko chun-chun kar matdata suchi se hatane ka kaam karegi.”
Shah was speaking at a public meeting in Sawai Madhopur district’s Gangapur before heading for another event in Kota on Saturday. The BJP chief was in Rajasthan earlier this month as his party and the Congress gear up for the Assembly elections by the year-end.
