The government will identify illegal immigrants staying in any part of the country and deport them as per international law, Home Minister Amit Shah said in Rajya Sabha that the government will ensure that all illegal settlers in India are deported as per international law.
The minister was replying to a supplementary query by Samajwadi Party member Javed Ali Khan on whether the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will be implemented in other states as well.
Earlier this month, TMC MP Mahua Moitra said that people, who have been living in the country for the past 50 years, are being thrown out of their homes and are being called illegal immigrants. "People who have lived in this country for 50 years must show a piece of paper to prove they are Indians," she had said in Parliament earlier this month.
Shah's statement comes a day after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said that the Centre has adopted a multi-pronged approach to ensure effective surveillance and domination of international borders to check infiltration of illegal migrants.
