If there is NPR, there will be NRC, says Owaisi in Lok Sabha

New Delhi: AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi hit out at NDA government at the centre saying that NRC and NPR are one and the same thing.

The AIMIM leader further stated that CAA “grants as well as snatches citizenship.” Speaking in the Lok Sabha, he said: “If there is NPR, there will be NRC. PM says CAA is not to snatch citizenship, it is to give citizenship. CAA grants as well as snatches citizenship. In Assam, names of five lakh Muslims did not figure? But you want to give citizenship to Bengali Hindus. NRC and NPR are the same things.”

Referring to the protest against CAA in the country, the AIMIM leader said: “The Prime Minister had said that he is the brother of Muslim women. Today when Muslim women are standing against him, why is the brother getting anguished? The current environment in the country is similar to Germany in 1933, 1938.”
