Bengaluru: All you infiltrators out there, beware! 

While you continue to stay put in India illegally, your time will soon be out! 

Union home minister Amit Shah thundered that he has set a deadline of 2024 for implementing the National Registry of Citizens (NRC). 

He was speaking at an election rally when he made this revelation. 

“Today, I want to tell you that before the 2024 polls the NRC will be conducted across the country and each and every infiltrator identified and expelled,” he said. 

The Union home minister also took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi. 

He said, "Rahul Baba (Congress leader Rahul Gandhi) says don't expel them. Where will they go, what will they eat? But I assure you that before the country goes to polls in 2024 all illegal immigrants will be thrown out."

It was not just the NRC. The Union home minister also touched upon the sensitive issue of Ram mandir in Ayodhya. 

He said, "Congress leaders would tell the Supreme Court that there is no need for hearing the Ram Janmabhoomi case. With your (people's) backing, we submitted that it be taken forward, and the result is that the apex court has ruled that only a Ram temple will be built in Ayodhya."

While the home minister said so, a review petition was filed. 

Maulana Syed Ashhad Rashidi, legal heir of original litigant M Siddiq, has filed the review plea saying that the judgment suffers from "errors apparent on record and warrants a review under Article 137 of the Constitution of India".

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan termed PM Modi and Amit Shah as “infiltrators” for their decision to implement NRC. And rightly so, he drew a lot of flak from the opposition ranks.
