Union Home Minister Amit Shah on December 24th, 2019, stated that there is no need to debate on pan-India National Register of Citizens (NRC) as there is no discussion on it right now.
“There is no discussion on pan-India NRC yet either in the Cabinet or Parliament,” he added. He also clarified that there is no link between NRC and NPR.
Talking about the criticism on contentious newly enacted Citizenship Amendment Act, the minister said that the law has nothing to do with NRC.
Shah, while saying that misinformation are being spread on detention center, said, “There is no connection between detention center and NRC or CAA. The center has been there for years and is for illegal migrants. Misinformation is being spread on this.”
