“However, Opposition leaders protested against it (NRC Assam draft) in Parliament saying what will happen to their human rights. I want to ask Rahul Gandhi and his company that they can see the human rights of these infiltrators who come to India and do violence, can’t they see the human rights of children of our people?” he asked.

“Are you worried about the intruders or the youth of this country? After 2019, we won’t allow even a single infiltrator in India,” Shah said while addressing a rally here.
Stepping up his attack on Rahul Gandhi, Amit Shah said, “He said that this time Congress will come to power in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh….I want to tell Rahul Gandhi that since Narendra Modi has become the Prime Minister in 2014, you can check the results of various elections across the country, and then speak what will happen in these three states…”
The BJP president went on to describe the Vasundhara Raje government in Rajasthan as an unshakeable “Angad ka Paon” that cannot be dislodged by the opposition. He was referring to a character in the Ramayana who possessed a foot that even demon king Ravana could not move.
