Will not let even one single immigrant stay in India: Amit Shah

Will not let even one single immigrant stay in India: Amit Shah

After submitting a memorandum to Shah, who is also the Union Home Minister, at the venue of the 68th Plenary Session of the North East Council (NEC) here, the party's state unit president Ranjit Dass told reporters that they had discussed "anomalies in the contentious NRC" with the party national president.

Ever since the Central government moved a Presidential order on August 5 scrapping Article 370, which gave Jammu and Kashmir its special powers, and divided the state into two Union Territories, Article 371, which has special provisions for other States, mostly from the Northeast, has invited some attention.

"After abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, there were attempts to misinform and misguide the people of North East that Article 371 would also be scrapped by the Centre", he said.

Shah noted that he chose to clarify the point because "some people does not want the people of northeast to join the mainstream and become the part of India's development". I want to clearly say that not a single illegal migrant will be allowed to stay in the country by the Government of India.

There is already churning in Assam as around 1.9 million people in the state found themselves excluded from the final list of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) that was published last week.

"Article 370 was the temporary provision". We want all the eight States in the region to be on the air and railway map of India.

The home affairs ministry, paraphrasing a speech by Home Affairs Minister Amit Shah in the northeastern state, said he was satisfied with the "timely completion of the process". Article 371B deals with the special provision with respect to Assam.

The comment were made by Amit Shah during a visit to the border state.

Noting the diverse culture of northeast, Shah said there were around 270 ethnic groups and around 150 dialects in the region. "The region can not be developed if these areas remain uncared for", he said.

Shah also added that while the northeast had been coping with issues of security and terrorism for many years, but "today northeast is known for connectivity, development and investment and job opportunities".

"The eight N-E states are like Astalakhmi and they will play a vital role in the country's development", he said and added, the NEC would earmark 30 per cent of funds for the deprived sections.
