If NRC is implemented, Manoj Tiwari will have to leave Delhi: Kejriwal

New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said if the NRC was implemented in the national capital, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari will have to leave the city first. Kejriwal made the statement while responding to a question on Tiwari saying that illegal migrants were responsible for the increase in crime in Delhi, while referring to a particular case.

"If NRC was implemented in Delhi, Tiwari will have to leave Delhi first," the Chief Minister said. Meanwhile, criticizing the controversial statement on NRC by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari has said that it is unfortunate.

Tiwari, also a Lok Sabha MP from Delhi, has been demanding National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the national capital, after it was done in Assam.

Earlier this week, Tiwari demanded that the NRC is important as there is no record of illegal foreign migrants living in the city, who are also a threat to the security of the nation. "There is no record of the illegal migrants. They commit a crime but we don't have any record. They may also do anti-national activities. It is a security threat for the people as well as the country," Tiwari said.

He said that "the NRC will only target those people who are from outside the country. Indians, from any part of the country, living in Delhi will not be affected in any form. The issue will be only for illegal foreign migrants."

Tiwari made a scathing attack on Kejriwal saying that the chief minister does not know the real meaning of NRC. Tiwari further said that this is insult to the Poorvanchalis living in Delhi since decades and also insult to the people who have come from other states and contributing in the development of Delhi.

"Kejriwal should apologize to the people of Delhi because he has insulted all the people of Delhi who are contributing in making Delhi the proud capital of India," Tiwari said.
