Whenever someone from BJP talks about #NRC for the while country, even if it's @AmitShah, even if u love this govt, ask, for your own sake:
1. First have you figured out what you'll do with NRC excluded in #Assam? Show me proof this method works to deport illegals.
2. The cut off date to show citizenship in Assam is 1971, when Bangladesh was formed. What is it for regions that don't border Bangladesh?
3. FRRO is the one monitoring visas and foreigners resident in India, picks out illegal stay. How will it work with #NRC?
4. The Census dept is making the National Population Register (NPR) for residents of India. It even collects biometrics. It's ongoing. Will this be distinct from @NRC? Do we need so many lists?
5. What do I have to prove to be in the #NRC outside Assam? Birth in India? Citizenship Act has many layers. What documents do I have to show? What if my grandma doesn't have documents? Will you jail her?
6. In #Assam the #NRC mechanism often Bengali speakers as illegals coz Bangladesh has Bengali speakers too.
Where will you deport me if I'm a Malayalam or Telugu or Marathi speaking 70-yr-old without papers/passport? Which country do you think I've come from?
7. NRC in Assam relied heavily on NRC 1951, done only in #Assam. Anyone on it could prove they were resident in India in 1951. What will the rest of us have?
8. Greatest Q: Am I not an Indian citizen if I don't have documents?
I apologise for the many typos
