Shah questioned why Rahul Gandhi was persistent on saving all the immigrants. Shah hit out at Rahul asking whether the infiltrators his cousins.
“Rahul baba says don’t expel them. Where will they go, what will they eat,” I want to ask him, are these immigrants his cousins?” Shah added.
Shah also said that the BJP will implement NRC before they come to seek votes for the next Lok Sabha Polls (2024).
