New Delhi:

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday demanded that the AAP government should identify and evict Rohingyas and Bangladeshis living illegally in the national capital, saying they were depriving the poor in India of their rights.

The Delhi BJP has written a letter to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the issue, he told reporters here.

He said the BJP has already made the demand to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and now the Delhi government must act to ensure eviction of illegal migrants.ALSO READ | Parliament monsoon session Live: Doklam issue resolved with diplomatic maturity, says Sushma Swaraj

“The Delhi government should identify and ensure action against Rohingyas and Bangladeshis living illegally in different parts of Delhi,” he said.

Illegal migrants were depriving India’s poor of their rights and were also found to be involved in criminal activities sometimes, he said.

Tiwari’s remark came after the Assam government published the final draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC), a list of its citizens, on July 30. The draft has 2.9 crore names out of 3.29 crore applications, leaving out over 40 lakh applicants.ALSO READ | Congress MP Sushmita Dev alleges Bengalis beaten up along Assam-Meghalaya border
