New Delhi : As the final list of national register of citizens (NRC) was released in Assam, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Saturday renewed his demand for a similar exercise in the city and said he will meet the Union Home Minister soon to press for it.

The situation in Delhi is "dangerous" due to the presence of a "large number" of illegal immigrants including Bangladeshis and Rohingyas who have been found involved in "criminal activities", he said.

Tiwari, who had demanded NRC exercise to identify and evict illegal immigrants from Delhi, wrote to the then Home Minister Rajnath Singh in August and November last year on the issue. "This is a very precarious situation which needs urgent attention. I will soon meet Home Minister Amit Shah to urge him for conducting NRC exercise in the national capital," Tiwari said.

Shah, during his campaign for Lok Sabha elections earlier this year, had repeatedly said that BJP will ensure after coming to power that illegal immigrants are identified and evicted.
