Jaipur: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Saturday said Bangladeshi migrants are like termites and each one of them will be struck off the electoral roll.
Referring to the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC) recently published in Assam, he said the BJP government brought NRC and prima facie identified nearly 40 lakh illegal immigrants.
Shah, who was speaking at a public meeting in Sawai Madhopur district's Gangapur, said the BJP government would pick out each and every infiltrator.
The BJP chief was in Rajasthan earlier this month as well as his party and the Congress gear up for the assembly elections by the year-end. “The BJP government in Rajasthan is like the unshakeable 'Angad ka Paon',” he said, referring to a character in Ramayana whose foot even Ravana could not move. “The Congress cannot do any good for the country as that party has neither a leader nor a policy,” he said.
Calling Congress president Rahul Gandhi ‘Rahul Baba’, Shah said while he was demanding an account of the work done by the BJP, the people want him to answer what the four generations of his own family have done.
He said Rajasthan was a ‘Bimaru’ state during the Congress rule but chief minister Vasundhra Raje had worked to bring progress, adding that both the Union and state governments had initiated development projects.(This story has not been edited by News18 staff and is published from a syndicated news agency feed)
