BJP MP Parvesh Verma on Tuesday demanded the implementation of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Delhi to evict “illegal immigrants”.
Raising the issue during the Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, he said Delhi was increasingly witnessing heinous crimes and claimed that the culprits were found to be “illegal Bangladeshi immigrants and Rohingyas”.
“The Delhi police have deported around 16,785 illegal immigrants till now from Delhi,” he said in a statement. “These illegal immigrants have so deeply penetrated inside the city that they have managed to acquire ration cards through illegal means that makes it difficult for the police to identify them,” he alleged.
He alleged that the Congress and AAP did not pay attention to NRC exercise due to “vote-bank politics”, and requested the Centre to take steps to implement it in Delhi.
