Did the PM deliberately ignore the multiple assertions of his Home Minister on nationwide NRC?

Or did the PM publicly admonish his HM for making those repeated assertions on nationwide NRC?

Or has the PM forgotten the President's address to Parliament promising NRC?

Or did the PM forget his interview to Times Now about nationwide NRC?

Thoughts?

‪ ‪A $126 billion -- that's what has spent in South & Central Asia to influence countries with poor results, a new study says. Not Surprisingly, India is a key target.

India's finally staring down a dark hole.

For some, the citizenship amendment Bill finally puts Muslims in their place. They will couch it's justification in many ways to hide the essential fact -- that it is a violation of the basic tenets of the Indian constitution.
