BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday said his party will implement NRC across the country and throw out every infiltrator if the party is voted back to power. Addressing a rally in Raiganj in West Bengal, Shah also said Bengali refugees in West Bengal.
Later in the day, BJP posted a tweet on its official Twitter handle quoting Shah that apart from Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs, every infiltrator will be removed from the country.
“We will ensure implementation of NRC in the entire country. We will remove every single infiltrator from the country, except Buddha, Hindus and Sikhs: Shri @AmitShah #NaMoForNewIndia”

Many started slamming the party for not including other communities and one particular comment by a Twitter user people caught the Internet’s attention. The man who named as Avtar Singh said “Kindly don’t use Sikhs for your votes….we will be happy if you remove “sikhs” as well from your tweet….muslims are our brothers as much as Hindus or other religions….”
