BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav said on Thursday that not even a single citizen will be subjected to injustice in the matter of NRC in Assam and that the persons concerned have ample opportunities to prove their citizenship, news agency PTI reported.

"We are ready to take tough decisions for security of Assam and national security. But, not a single citizen will be subjected to any injustice," he said.

The aggrieved persons have the option of going to tribunal and high court, he said, delivering the Janamanchi Gourishankar Memorial Lecture on 'Divisive Politics or Decisive Politics: NRC in the context of National Security' organised by the ABVP here tonight.

This effort is not being done with any vindictiveness against anybody, to trouble any communal group, he reportedly claimed.

Madhav said that the government would decide that what steps would be taken on illegal migrants once the list is finalised, he said.

Bangladesh does not want infiltrators on its soil and it is in talks with Myanmar on taking back Rohingyas, he said.

"Owaisi is welcoming them here (Hyderabad)," he said.

He criticised West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi for their stance on illegal migrants.

"Mamata Banerjee ji in Bengal, Owaisi ji in Hyderabad and in Delhi, there are some leaders, they are championing the cause of illegal infiltrators," he said.

Banerjee had alleged in Parliament in 2005 that Communists are doing wrong politics in Bengal by converting illegal migrants as vote bank, he claimed.
