Hyderabad, July 31 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA T Raja Singh on Tuesday gave a controversial remark on Assam NRC issue. He said that “If these Rohingyas and Bangladeshi illegal immigrants do not leave India respectfully, then they should be shot and eliminated.” The BJP MLA gave this remark after the second and final draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) was published on Monday with 2.9 crore names out of the total 3.29 crore applicants in Assam. The names of over 40 lakh applicants did not find a place in the historic document, touted to be proof of Assamese identity. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Samajwadi Party MPs also staged protests in the Parliament over the issue.
