Amit Shah, President of the BJP has said that till a single worker of the party is alive, Kashmir cannot be separated from India.
He added that even if BJP doesn’t come to power, the state will remain an integral part of India.
Addressing a rally in Raigarh district headquarters in Chhattisgarh, Shah said, “Election is underway in Jammu and Kashmir and an ally of Congress, leader of National Conference Omar Abdullah had advocated for a prime minister in Kashmir. Do you think it’s possible that a country can have two PMs? I have been asking Rahul baba to clarify his stand on the (Abdullah’s) statement, but he is silent,” Shah said slamming Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.
“Rahul baba listen carefully…Presently there is a government headed by Modi ji and it will be re-elected. But even if we are not in power, nobody can separate Kashmir from India till a single BJP worker is alive. Kashmir is an integral part of India and if anyone says that it will be isolated from the country, then people of the country will not tolerate it,” he added.
Speaking about the National Register for Citizens he said, “Congress is saying do not bring NRC, but I want to urge you to again elect the Narendra Modi government at the Centre…infiltrators will be identified right from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Gujarat to Assam, and deported,” he said.
Recently, Shah has said that his party will ensure that National Register of Citizens of India (NRC) is implemented across India and ‘every single infiltrator will be removed from the country.’
He had added that all Buddhist and Hindu refugees will be identified and Indian nationality will be given to them.
Shah had said that after forming the Government in New Delhi, they will remove Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.
In February, Shah had said that the Modi Government brought in the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in order to prevent Assam from becoming another Kashmir.
Recently, Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that if the Citizen (Amendment) Bill 2016 is not passed, it will be a surrender to the ‘philosophy of Jinnah.
Sarma also added that the purpose of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) was to “detect Jinnahs”.
In the north-eastern state of Assam, India has published a list which strips four million people of their citizenship. It says the process is to root out hordes of illegal Bangladeshi migrants.
The list, named as the National Register of Citizens (NRC), is a list of people who can prove they came to the state by 24 March 1971, when Bangladesh was created.
The list has sparked fears of targeted hunting towards ethnic minorities in Assam. However, officials have said that no one will face immediate deportation and that the option of an appeal will be available to all.
