BJP MP Tejasvi Surya on Wednesday urged the Union government to extend the National Register of Citizens (NRC) to Karnataka as, he alleged, illegal immigrants from Bangladesh had become a security threat to Bengaluru and the entire State.


At present, the NRC, a register containing the genuine names of Indian citizens , is being implemented only in Assam under the supervision of the Supreme Court.
