“Opposition leaders, however, 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.
Amit Shah is on a two-day visit to Madhya Pradesh and was addressing party workers at the Dussehra Maidan.
