New Delhi, Aug 2 (UNI) Amid heightened controversy and credit seeking and blame giving exercise between political parties on the citizenship issue in Assam, the ruling BJP on Thursday demanded that a marathon National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise be carried out nationwide.
The demand was put forward on the floor of the Lok Sabha during Zero Hour by BJP lawmaker Nishikant Dubey amid strong protest from Congress and Trinamool Congress members and others.
“Like we had NRC in Assam, such an exercise should be carried out across the country.
Keeping in mind in the Lok Sabha, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey gave a strange statement. He said that the population of Muslims in the country is increasing so intrusion is also increasing, NRC should be implemented throughout the country.
