Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari has blamed illegal immigrants for 80% crimes in the national capital. After the incident of chain snatching with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's niece in Delhi's Civil Lines, Tiwari once again raised a call for national register for citizens (NRC) exercise in the state to identify and evict illegal immigrants involved in crimes. Tiwari said, 'As many as 80 per cent crimes involve illegal immigrants in Delhi. That's why I have been demanding NRC but whenever I do so, Arvind Kejriwal rises as their shield. But it needs to be worked out how is the Delhi Police going to control crime in Delhi when a large number of illegal immigrants are living in different parts of the city.'
