New Delhi, July 31 : A day after the final draft of Assam’s National Register of Citizens (NRC) was released, the Congress- led Opposition parties and BJP-led NDA government at the Centre were involved in a bitter war of words both inside and outside Parliament on Tuesday.
Power often comes with blindness and ego and it reflected when Ashwini Choubey, a Union Minister in the Narendra Modi government lost his temper outside the Parliament and started arguing with Congress MP Pradip Bhattacharya in Parliament premises over the NRC Assam issue.
Ashwini Choubey said, ” Only Indians will be allowed to live in the country. Rest can leave. Illegal Bangladeshis, Rohingyas will be deported.”

Pradip Bhattacharya said, “You are misleading the people of the country. I am aware what you are trying to do.”
Ashwini Choubey then started trading charges and asked , “Who are you and Bangladeshis will be thrown out of this country .”
Both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha witnessed uproar over the issue and Home Minister Rajnath Singh said Army has been deployed to stop Rohingya Muslims’ infiltration into the country.In Rajya Sabha, BJP president Amit Shah said that the NDA government has done what the UPA couldn’t. “Rajiv Gandhi signed Assam accord in 1985, which was similar to NRC. They did not have courage to implement it, we did,” Amit Shah added.
He also said he has issued an advisory to states to monitor those who have already infiltrated. “They have been asked to keep them in one place and not let them spread. States also have the right to deport them,” Rajnath Singh said.
Trinamool Congress member Sugata Bose raised the issue that the Ministry of External Affairs is carrying out “Operation Insaniyat” (Operation Humanity) in Bangladesh while on the other hand it started the process of deportation of Rohingyas from the country.
“External Affairs Ministry is conducting operation insaniyat (humanity) for Rohingyas in Bangladesh. There are about 40,000 Rohingyas in India. Will we show insaniyat for only those who are in Bangladesh?” Bose said.
Modi MPs are extremely conscious of their privileges but inside the Parliament or in public they lose their ethics and start giving provocative statements .
