New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: In a befitting reply to Arvind Kejriwal’s remark on him, Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari said that if Kejriwal considers residents of other states as infiltrators then surely he has lost his mental stability.

“I would like to ask if he wants to say that a person who hails from Purvanchal is an illegal infiltrator, whom he wants to chase out of Delhi?”, he said.

“People who have migrated from other states are considered as foreigners by you (Delhi CM). You want to chase them out from Delhi, you're one among them. If this is his intention then I think he has lost his mental stability. How does an IRS officer not know what NRC is?” he added.

Manoj Tiwari’s comments come after Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal spuriously said that if NRC is implemented in Delhi then Manoj Tiwari will be the first to leave the national capital.

"Manoj Tiwari said infiltrators are responsible for the attack on a journalist so NRC should be implemented in Delhi. If NRC is implemented in Delhi then Manoj Tiwari will be the first who will have to leave Delhi", Kejriwal said while replying to a question posed by the media on Wednesday.

Arvind Kejriwal’s comment comes after he concluded his press conference here in Delhi.

BJP MP Manoj Tiwari had earlier demanded that a National Register of Citizens (NRC) is needed in Delhi as illegal immigrants who have settled here are 'dangerous and the demand will be part of the party's election manifesto for the Assembly polls next year.

The NRC has been developed with the aim of segregating Indian citizens from illegal migrants.
