Speaking at a programme in Kolkata, the national general secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) told the audience that there would be a 100 per cent implementation of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) but that Hindus need not to have any apprehensions about the same, reports PTI.

He added that the BJP will soon pass the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the Parliament.

"As the national general secretary of BJP I want to assure all of you that NRC will be implemented but not a single Hindu will have to leave the country. Each and every Hindu will be given citizenship," he said.

Indirectly targeting the Trinamool, without naming it specifically, he spoke of some people working to “spread canards and misguide the people”.

He also took aim at illegal immigrants who were staying in India, saying that the country wasn’t a charity house that that those belonging to the majority community in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan could simply infiltrate across the border.
