Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA T Raja Singh on Tuesday gave a controversial remark on Assam NRC issue. He said that “If these Rohingyas and Bangladeshi illegal immigrants do not leave India respectfully, then they should be shot and eliminated.”

Assam’s updated National Register of Citizens (NRC) is a draft and “no coercive action” should be taken against people whose names were excluded, the Supreme Court said on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court allowed the Union government to draft rules for dealing with the claims and objections of 40 lakh people who were excluded from NRC, which was published on Monday.
