In­dia not a shel­ter home: Shah

The Hindu - - NEWS - Press Trust of In­dia

BJP pres­i­dent Amit Shah said on Satur­day that In­di­ans had the right to the coun­try’s re­sources, and that In­dia was not a

“dharamshala.”

De­scrib­ing il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion as a threat to the coun­try, Mr. Shah said, “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. This coun­try is not a (char­i­ta­ble shel­ter home) that any­one can come and set­tle down here,” Mr. Shah said. “They [in­trud­ers] should be iden­ti­fied. Delete their names from the elec­toral roll.”

He was speak­ing at an event or­gan­ised by the Dainik Ja­gran me­dia group.
