New Delhi: Parliament of India.

MPs of opposition parties on July 31, 2018 staged a protest outside Parliament against the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Armed with placards against the NRC, leaders from the TMC, SP RJD, TDP, AAP, BSP and JD(S) demanded that the government bring in changes in the NRC.

“The NRC is forcing people to become refugees in their won country,” TMC leader Kalyan Banerjee claimed.

They alleged by bringing in the NRC the ruling party was trying to divide the people

“It is a divisive tactic of the BJP, ” alleged AAP leader Sanjay Singh.

The BJP-led NDA government and the Congress-led opposition were involved in a bitter war of words both inside and outside Parliament on July 31, 2018 .

While both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha witnessed uproar, MPs were seen engaging in a verbal duel outside the Parliament complex.
