Addressing a rally in Jharkhand’s Bokaro, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said Modi government will implement National Register of Citizens (NRC) across all states of the country. He added that every Indian has a right to know who are the illegal immigrants in the country.
He attacked the opposition saying, “Some parties find our fault in this as well, they accuse us of being communal.” Reiterating BJP’s manifesto promise of Ram temple in Ayodhya, he added, “We are going to build a grand temple of Lord Ram at the birthplace of Ramlalla.” Launching a scathing attack at the opposition, the defence minister said that parties used to mock government over the temple issue, but now, Rajnath Singh added, “None can stop us from building the temple."
