BJP president Amit Shah has said “illegal infiltrators” took away jobs of youths in the country and alleged that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and other opposition parties had opposed the NRC when 40 lakh such settlers were identified under the exercise.
Addressing a convention of BJP workers at Polo Ground in Shivpuri, Shah said the BJP governments would “drive each and every infiltrator out of the country” after winning elections in 2018 and 2019.
Taking a dig at Gandhi, Shah said he should “stop daydreaming” about the Congress coming to power after elections.
Referring to the National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Assam, he said the BJP government would drive each of the 40 lakh “illegal infiltrators” out of the country as the party stands for national security and rights of Indians.
“When the NRC identified 40 lakh illegal migrants in Assam, Rahul baba and parties like the SP (Samajwadi Party), BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party) and Trinmool Congress (TMC) raised a hue and cry and opposed the exercise,” Shah said.
He said the youths of the country lost their jobs to the illegal immigrants.
“These migrants took away the jobs of our youths. They (opposition parties) lacked concern for our youths and for the hunger of the people of this country. We will drive each infiltrator out after winning elections in 2018 and 2019,” he said.
