All illegal immigrants will be deported: Shah

Says govt. will identify infiltrators
Answering a question on the National Register of Citizens (NRC), Home Minister Amit Shah told the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday that his government will ensure that all the illegal immigrants are identified and deported. Mr. Shah was replying in the Rajya Sabha to a supplementary question from Samajwadi Party MP Javed Ali Khan on whether the government intended to carry out an exercise on the lines of the NRC in Assam across the country. Mr. Shah said the BJP manifesto, on the basis of which his government has been elected, had clearly said the government would identify “illegal immigrants” and “infiltrators” from every “inch” of the country and “they will be deported in accordance to prevailing international laws”.
His statement drew loud applause from the treasury benches.
The original question on the NRC was raised by BJP MP Amar Shankar Sable who questioned the inordinate delay in publishing the final list in Assam. Replying to Mr. Sable, Minister of State Nityanand Rai replied that the government was committed to ensuring that an “error free” NRC is published where no genuine Indian citizen is left behind and no illegal immigrant is added.
