Bhubaneswar: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) General Secretary Bhaiyaji Joshi said on Friday that National Register of Citizens (NRC) act needs to be implemented across India to clear out illegal migrants from the country.
“There is a need to implement NRC all across the country. Every government must impose NRC as there are a lot of illegal migrants and there is a dire need to identify them. Our government must first focus on the well being of its citizens,” he said while addressing a press conference in Bhubaneswar.
“For any government, the primary responsibility is to find out anti-national elements and anti-national activities and take requisite measures to curb it,” he said.
Joshi further added, ” This Act of NRC is not against any community. We believe that those who come to our country are not the citizens of India and are foreigners. Indians should be recognised. We should leave it to the government for making a decision pertaining to the migrants.”
Talking about the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, the RSS leader said, “Earlier Kashmiri Pandits had to migrate from the Valley despite being the natives. But now after the withdrawal of Article 370, the victims should return to Kashmir. The government must take requisite steps to create a positive atmosphere in the region.”
