New Delhi, Aug 28 (UNI) BJP Chief Ministers in a crucial meeting attended among others by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah on Tuesday resolved that "illegal foreign immigrants have no place in the country".
"The party is united and unanimous about its stand on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) issue and resolved yet again that illegal foreign immigrants have no place in the country," Chhattisgath Chief Minister Raman Singh told reporters here.
He, however, made it clear that with regard 'Hindu minorities' be it in Bangladesh or Pakistan - if they are harassed and face 'threats' and if they come to India, - "nishchit rup se (certainly) they should get a place of stay in India".
"This important decision has been taken and is also well underlined in the Citizens Amendment Bill," he said.
The draft law is now being examined by the Joint Parliamentary Committee headed by BJP member Rajendra Agrawal.
Moreover, at the BJP's Chief Minister's Council meeting the issue of setting up of 'fast track' courts on citizenship issue was also discussed, Mr Singh said.
