On Sunday, Yadav had said that he would not fill the NPR form, and had inquired his party specialists to too boycott the exercise. “The BJP will not choose whether I am an Indian or not. We need work and not NPR,” he had said whereas tending to a press conference.
Now, in reaction, the BJP has inquired Yadav to spend a month in Pakistan to get it the outrages being confronted by the Hindu minorities there.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party President Swatantra Dev Singh said, “Akhilesh should remain in Pakistan for a month and pray in Hindu sanctuaries. Only then he will get first-hand experience of the atrocities committed against the Hindus.”
“There is nothing wrong with the NPR. It only asks for everyday documents such as the Aadhaar card and driving licence, even confirmation by three neighbours, to establish that the person is a resident of the area. But some political parties are making an issue of it,” he added.
