HOSHANGABAD (MP): Raking up the issue of Assam NRC and illegal immigrants in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, BJP chief Amit Shah on Sunday said the opposition parties considered as "vote bank" those who infiltrated into India while for the BJP, they remain a security threat. Shah was addressing a convention of party workers in Hoshangabad.

Slamming Rahul Gandhi on the issue of illegal immigrants, the BJP president alleged that "Rahul baba and company" were "sympathising" with the "intruders".


"The BJP government identified 40 lakh infiltrators by creating NRC (National Register of Citizens) in Assam. But Rahul baba and company raised a hue and cry, sympathising with the intruders," Shah said.

Shah said the BJP governments would drive "each and every infiltrator" out of the country after winning elections in 2018 (in MP) and 2019 (Lok Sabha).

He also accused the previous Congress-led UPA government of discriminating against Madhya Pradesh in allocation of funds.

Taking a swipe at Gandhi, the BJP chief said, "During his visit to Madhya Pradesh, Rahul baba is asking the prime minister what his government has done in the last four and a half years. We do not need to answer him."

He asked Gandhi to give an account of the work done by "four generations" of his family instead of questioning the performance of PM Modi's government.

"People of Madhya Pradesh are asking him (Gandhi) to give an account of the work done by four generations of his family, including the work done by Nehru (Jawaharlal Nehru), his grandmother Indira Gandhi, his father Rajiv Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi," Shah said.

Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh are slated for November 28.
