Defending the National Register of Citizens (NRC), Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Monday asked why it should not be implemented?
"Why shouldn't NRC be implemented? Is India a Dharmshala where anyone can enter and stay back? A few people want infiltrators to stay here just for vote bank," said Prasad during India TV’s 'Jai Hind With India TV' conclave.
Commenting on mob lynching he clarified that Centre does not support it.
“Incidents of lynching are unacceptable. State governments must take strict action against those involved as law and order is under their purview,” he said and added, “Government is not going to monitor anyone's eating habit but sentiments of everyone must also be respected.”
On being asked that opposition alleges that PM Modi doesn't talk to the media often, he said, “Will the opposition decide when and how the PM should talk?”
He also said that the matter of Tripe Talaq is above caste.
“The matter of Tripe Talaq is not about a particular religion or caste. I would urge parties to stop politicising it,” union minister said.
