The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), the Congress and the Left have targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement regarding the National Register of Citizens (NRC). In the public meeting of Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, PM Modi said that there has never been any discussion in his government on the implementation of NRC across the country. Surprising Prime Minister Modi’s statement on NRC, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said that whenever a big policy is brought, it is discussed at the government level. Such a policy is not suddenly presented to the country without discussion.
